Outgoing president, Ross Brown congratulates new CIRS committee: Wolf Sievers, Gayle Duignan, Lyn Barrett and Maree Heron

A new committee was elected last month at the AGM of Rainbow Beach Community Information Resource Services (CIRS), known locally as the Community Centre.

Outgoing President Ross Brown did not seek re-election and his outstanding and selfless service to the community as president over the past five years was energetically and appreciably recognised and applauded by those at the meeting.

The new executive committee is President Wolf Sievers, Vice President Lyn Barrett, Secretary Maree Heron and Treasurer Gayle Duignan.

The new committee is keen to continue and expand appropriate utilisation of the community centre and hall, and seeks feedback about what community expectations are. Some current suggestions on activities for this year are a theatre restaurant, a themed ball, Brushes by the Sea Art Festival, pink ladies day, with further suggestions most welcome.

The historical display in the hall foyer is progressing slowly and suggestions, input, donations, materials should be given to Marg Johnston who is driving the project.

Table tennis is also progressing slowly on Wednesday mornings and more participation and input is invited.

Once participation grows a more structured program can be developed, involving more days and perhaps evenings, and even competitive events.

It’s a community facility, get involved, have a say, volunteer, and be happy with it.
