Sunshine Coast Council’s most recent Major Grants have awarded more than $930,000 among 112 volunteer groups to support projects which will provide community benefit well into the future. Congratulations to the Thai Community of the Sunshine Coast who received $3000 towards their cultural event that will be held in The Market Terrace in Eumundi this November. Council’s Community Grants Program provides support to not-for-profit community groups for one-off projects, events and activities that benefit the Sunshine Coast community. The next round of Major Grants will open on 19 July.
National Reconciliation Week
I was pleased to see a variety of activities everyone could participate in during National Reconciliation Week recently. This year’s theme was More Than A Word, and encouraged people to discover that reconciliation takes action and is a journey for all Australians. We all have a role to play in this important reconciliation journey, which at the heart of it builds on the relationships between First Nations people and the wider community. Did you know you can view a wide range of National Reconciliation Week resources about First Nations Australians available from Sunshine Coast Libraries including books, eBooks, movies and podcasts. View online or visit Eumundi library.
Sunshine Coast Show is a go!
After a pause last year due to the pandemic, the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show is back for 2021 and will be held June 11-13. Show your support and see some of the best agriculture displays and competitions from across the region during this long weekend. For more information visit www.sunshinecoastshow.com.au
Thank you, volunteers
National Volunteer Week was held recently, and I’d like to personally pass on my sincere thanks to all the dedicated volunteers and community groups in Eumundi including Rotary who produce the Eumundi Voice. It takes a village and your efforts are truly appreciated.
