Telling story of goodwill
evidence for us to apply for community funding and grants,” Ms Holeczy said.
“We’re giving documentation saying all these sectors of the community have identified this as an issue, this is a solution, can we have some financial support to make this happen.”
Ms Holeczy said the morning was incredibly successful and she was grateful to everyone who attended.
“I think the dedication to come to a meeting at 6am and then go to a full day of work is wonderful,” she said. FEW things are more satisfying than making a difference in the local community.
Rotary Club member Eric Bottle knows this more than most, having been involved with the Rotary club for over 40 years.
During that time he has seen the important work done globally to almost eradicate polio and also the simple community support.
For this reason, Whitsunday residents are invited to a community club ‘Show and Tell Day’ at Airlie Bowls Club featuring 22 local community groups such as Mens Shed, Quota, Toast Masters, three contrasting
car clubs and more.
Mr Bottle said the event was an opportunity for people to learn more about what was happening in the community.
“I have been conscious of the need for this for a while because of the fact that virtually all community groups are looking for more volunteers,” he said.
“Through this show and tell, we try and help local organisations help themselves.”
Organisations will showcase the work they do in the community through demonstrations and handouts.
The Rotary Club will serve their famous sausage sizzle and there will also be a lucky door prize and a raffle.
Any organisation seeking to submit a late registration can call Eric Bottle on 0416 273 598.
More information on the full range of organisations involved can be found online.
