24th May 2020 - Our intrepid members went out nice an early to pick up the rubbish from the Shepparton entrance to town, near the Coolabah Roadhouse. After a couple of hours of hard work there were a lot of bags of rubbish to go to the tip. Well done guys and girls.
Community program - In April our club started a community initiative in collaboration with IGA to deliver groceries to our vulnerable and elderly people in our community that were isolated and needed help. Over the weeks since there has been a steady increase in the numbers of people utilising the service offered during the Covid19 pandemic. We are now helping 30+ residents stay safe with social distancing measures in place whilst they receive their delivery of groceries.
Community program - Gift of Music
Peter Holland initiated a collection of musical instruments to be collected by our club and redistributed through Rural Aid to disadvantaged kids who live in remote or rural areas. This project was run over 2 months and finished when Peter took a trailer load of instruments to Rural Aids head office. A great program and well done Peter and all our members who either donated or collected instruments of members of the community.
