Quiet month. Good revenue from calendar sales and the street carnival with minimal expenses. Some expenses for Sunshine Safari, Carols at Twilight and street carnival to come in January 12.
We were informed of a Joint Club meeting with Nambour 76 at a date to be announced.
The Sergeant then extracted some fine money from members followed by the heads & tails which was won by Keith Rogers (without the accompanying benefit of a scratchy!).
Winston Johnston was then asked to speak on his idea of the Service Clubs combining on a joint venture to have a unisex toilet block built in Cooke Park.
This Park was gifted to the Council by the Cooke family many years ago. It now has a kid’s playground and is adjacent to the Town Bus Stop, which makes it an ideal place to have this amenity.
Winston suggested that we need to approach the Council to see if and how they could support this building; its response would determine the scope of the project for the Clubs that would be involved. It could be raising funds and/or working to build under supervision.
There was some interest in this project with members' questions & general discussion. It was suggested that this could be a forerunner to projects in the Maleny Precinct. The Club members need to discuss our involvement further.
Winston was thanked for his talk and presented with a copy of the booklet Humanity in Motion.
The meeting was then closed and we were reminded to take notice of dates of upcoming activities
