At the recent community get-together at the Church of the Good Shepherd, Doug Mather, manager of 91.5fm Cooloola Christian Radio, enthralled those who attended with some of his life experiences and his vision and hopes for the station.
Doug took on the role of manager at 91.5fm in September last year, and since then he and wife Kate have given the station a new lease of life and demonstrated their ability to connect with our community including local schools, businesses and organisations.
Doug played bass guitar in many bands over the years and entertained the group with some of his favourite songs. A delicious meal was shared and then Doug answered questions about what the future of 91.5fm holds and how the station can bless and support the Cooloola Coast community.
The station is a major sponsor of this year’s Gympie Christmas Lights Competition with some great prizes up for grabs so pencil in a date in your diary in December to come and check them out!
Doug has been on the organising committee for the recent Live & Local concerts which took place at venues at Rainbow Beach and in the Gympie region, providing a great opportunity to get a feel for what is happening in the music scene at a local level.
The next event for the Rainbow Beach Christian Community will be Community Carols on Sunday 19 December at the Church of the Good Shepherd and everyone is invited to come along and join us in singing many of the traditional songs we know and love. There will be a sausage sizzle happening from 5.30pm and carols will start at 6.30pm.
Music will be provided by Cooloola Cove local Pam Graham, with the assistance from the Cooloola Cove Ukulele Group under the direction of Marilyn Russell.
A variety of local singers will also help us retell the wonderful story of Christmas that has been passed down through the centuries. Sausages and candles will be available for a gold coin donation.
