MARYBOROUGH RSL HUGE EXPANSION PLANS ON TRACK & WITH PUBLIC SUPPORT

February 21st, 2013

THE MAGIC THAT IS MARYBOROUGH RSL & IT’S EXPANSION

THE Maryborough RSL is planning a two-storey expansion worth $6 million, in a move RSL president Bob Evans vows will be “the makings of Maryborough”.

“We are building two storeys in the two Adelaide St shops we own next door,” Mr Evans said.

“Our offices and poker machines will move into the new building.

“We’ll have a sports bar there with a TAB and upstairs will be a function area to seat 300 but which can be divided into three separate areas.”

Construction is scheduled to kick off in June.

“This is big for Maryborough and we’re just waiting on final approval from State RSL but we have already commissioned two builders to come up with the final design,” Mr Evans said.

“Significant local jobs will come out of this and I am absolutely confident the project is now a goer.

The name of the new building is being held tightly by Mr Evans but the hint is a “significant RSL name” will grace the structure.

“There’s more on the way when this goes through,” Mr Evans, who has served as president for six years, said.

“I’d like to see with members’ support more office space being created in the three shops we own in Adelaide Street on the other side of the club.

“I’d like to see Legacy, our library, our sub-branch all accommodated there on ground level so our veterans can easily access services.

“And my vision is that one day this club will have a multi-storey car park.”

The committee is already looking at the opportunity to introduce fine dining in the current club poker machine area and to redesign the kiddies’ room with a soundproof glass front.

“Our smokers’ area will encompass murals contributed by local schools to commemorate the 2015 Gallipoli centenary,” he said.

“2013 will be Maryborough RSL’s big year.”

SHAVE YOUR HEAD FOR THE LEUKAEMIA FOUNDATION CHARITY DRIVE

March 3rd, 2011

LEUKAEMIA FOUNDATION CHARITY EVENT

Every hour, someone in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Every two hours, someone dies from one of these blood cancers.

The money raised is used by the Leukaemia Foundation to fund services to support patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. All the Leukaemia Foundation services are free.  Funds raised go towards blood cancer research to find better treatments and cures.

This year I have made the commitment to help raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation and will be brave and shave my hair (completely off)!

That’s right on Saturday 12th of March at 5.30pm at the Bayswater myself and 14 other people in my team (Scalped Hervey Bay) will be shaving or colouring our hair to raise money.

This year it is my goal to raise $ 5000.00 for the this vital cause. I am putting the call out to all my friends and family, to help me raise the much need funds to help those people suffering from these blood related diseases.  If you area able to donate a few dollars towards my fund raising efforts I, as well at the patients suffering from Leukaemia would be very appreciative. Remember, any donations made online will receive a tax receipt.

If you would like to donate online please click here.   Alternatively email me and I can organise collecting any donation you may want to make.

Again I would like to thank you for your anticipated support and I hope the money raised will get us one step closer to finding a cure for this disease.

Thanks
Bernard Whebell

READ TO KIDS VOLUNTEERS WANTED ONCE A WEEK

June 25th, 2010

The Pyjama foundation is asking you to think of the kids for one hour a week.Read on…

Good Evening

My name is Cressida Toorenburg and I am the Regional Coordinator for The Pyjama Foundation.

The Pyjama Foundation recruits, screens, trains and supports Pyjama Angels – volunteer members of the community who work with foster children and support our true heroes – Australia’s foster families. Pyjama Angels deliver The Pyjama Foundation Love of Learning Program™, a literacy-based mentoring program which addresses statistics around children in care:

  • 92% of children in care are below the average reading level at age seven
  • 75% of these children do not complete schooling
  • 50% of the homeless come from a care background
  • 35% enter the juvenile justice system at some point (82% of Australian prisoners have below grade 4 level of functional literacy)
  • 28% of care-leavers are parents within 12 months of leaving care

I am currently looking for members of the Fraser Coast community over 18 years of age to be trained as Pyjama Angels. Angels visit a child in foster care once a week for one hour to read and engage them in literacy activities. The range and professional qualifications of our Pyjama Angels is diverse and they are made up of business and academic professionals, students, retirees and generally people who have a love of reading.

In an attempt to notify as many people and get the message out about this great not for profit organisation I would appreciate it if you could forward this email onto your networks please.

I have attached a copy of our Frequently Asked Questions and an application form should you or someone you know be interested in volunteering one hour a week. You may also like to visit the website  www.thepyjamafoundation.com where you can find further information including collection centres in the area for our annual pyjama drive.
