Club Calendar

While the Surf Show and Shine is taking up most of the Clubs activity at the moment we're also looking to keep the club active through the year ahead.
Its clear that the pandemic has hot many community organisations hard, and so we'll be looking to keep up our fundraising and community help. There are at least 3 potential projects that will come to fruition in the next few weeks.
Rotary & IFYS
  • WorkLife job skills. The club has been asked to help out at the Sports Hub with supporting the temporary residents in that facility with early job seeking and job keeping skills. Things like work preparation, interview skills, communication, etc. for 24-40 year olds.
  • Kitchen / Workshop. The club is also exploring how we could help with practical job skills around retail or small machine / bike repars
  • Major Youth sports / homeless facility. We're fortunate to have close relationships with IFYS and will be looking for wider Rotary (Cluster or District) support to support the developmemt and operation of the proposed Sippy Downs facility to help homeless or disengaged young sport people transition to a stronger relationship with the community, through mentoring and work skills transfer. 
  • The club has also been discussing with the Dept of Education on how we may be able to help support the youngsters that are in the THRIVE programs. This would be a much younger cohort of kids and be held in the Aerodrome Road THRIVE complex
We also recognise that we're a small club, so will be looking to use our network and other Rotary and volunteer clubs to help. 
Here's some of the things that will be going up:
12th - Bunning BBQ
26th & 27th - Surf Show and Shine 
11th - Walk for Mental Health along Alex Foreshore
Thrive & IFYS programs
6th - "Christmas at Alex"
