Carmel Darcey and Val Davison welcome new members to help the Community Centre run
The Rainbow Beach Community Centre is the hub of the community – providing a central point of contact for locals and visitors. Play a part and attend the AGM on Tuesday, March 14 at 11.30am at the Rainbow Beach Community Centre.
All executive positions at the AGM will be declared vacant, and people are needed to volunteer to keep the centre open.
“We would dearly love to have someone with book keeping skills to come in and do a couple of hours a week. No other strings attached,” said Vice President, Heather Robertson.
The services provided by the community centre are computers, photocopying, scanning, emailing, laminating.
“Another role is to manage the office, hall and meeting room, bookings, cleaning and purchases for the hall. This entails keeping inventories and considerable financial transactions,” explained Heather.
Referrals can be made to professional centres in Gympie – such as a specialised solicitor who offers free half hour consultations; the Women’s Health Centre and tourist information for Gympie Region.
“During the fortnight we have an APN team (for Jobsearch) every second Tuesday and Thursday, and we also offer bridge for anyone on a Friday,” Heather continued. “A JP is here on Mondays, and the Library uses the meeting room as well.”
The team at the Community Centre host fundraising events throughout the year, such as Big Morning Cuppa, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day raffles; and Trash and Treasure days.
