Look who's back in town, membership growing and all club news

Membership grows with new Corporate members - BOSS

At our last meeting we officially welcomed new corporate members Trina and John from BOSS. Of course Trina and John are well known to members and have been involved with the club activities for several months, and shortly after this photo was taken John L was "invited" to do more fundraising by being commis chef at Bunnings !!
But seriously it is great to have an organisation such as BOSS involved in the club and our community is all the richer for having folks like Trina and John and Matt engaged with us. Welcome all. smileyyes
Geoff, Trina, John and President Tony....

Past club Treasurer,  current auditor, and world traveller -  Stevo - is back in town

Just in case this past treasurer and all round good guy comes to visit his old club a certain scribe thought he should post a photo so that the new club members would recognise him.
This is Steve and Trish with past club international exchange student Hannah.... from 2019 would you believe.
Of Course Steve is much trimmer and fitter now after his trips to various parts of the globe, (??)  but still recognisable. Welcome back Steve. yes

Busy fund raising season for the club

It's been a  busy couple of months for the club, starting with "Christmas at Alex" BBQ on 14th December then a very busy Christmas Eve BBQ at Bunnings, and these followed by  2 BBQ's in January.
So a HUGELY BIG shout out to everyone who helped out at the BBQ fundraising, and a special mention must go to our amazing Craig for all his work organising the logistics and provisions, and to Sandi and Adam for making it a family effort. 
...and of course all the funds raised will do good in the community, so give yourselves a pat on the back. 
Our new Facebook major domo, captured these images of the team on Saturday, and one could not help but notice that a certain Sunshine Coast former senior citizen of the year has adopted a stationary if not statuesque  pose - but we're reliably informed that the hands moved between the first two photo's.smiley
Here's Tim looking for customers during a quiet spell..
and here's Ray B and "croquet demon" Tanya busy with customers ...and our mate still holding that statuesque pose in the background...
and here's Peter and Wendy ......(why am I thinking Peter Pan?) front of house with Bunnings customers...

GREAT response by Club to RYDA call out

President Elect Geoff put the call out for more members to get involved in the youth driving awareness program RYDA last meeting.
It was great to see unanimous support from the members to support the invitation to Mountain Creek school's 300+ students to get involved and the clubs full support to provide volunteers to make it a "life changing" experience for students who attend.
