SIM­I­LAR to the Hu­mans of New York project, The Golden Beach Progress As­so­ci­a­tion wants to high­light Caloun­dra’s best in its own ver­sion of the idea.

The group will be launch­ing FACES of Golden Beach and Pel­i­can Wa­ters in the new year and re­quest mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to send in one minute videos of them­selves to be up­loaded on GBPA’s Face­book page.

GBPA president Craig Humphrey said it’s a chance to create en­hanced con­nect­ed­ness with res­i­dents in the area.

“The Golden Beach and Pel­i­can Wa­ters com­mu­nity is ex­tra­or­di­nary,” Mr Humphrey said.

“Rich with mu­si­cians, cook­ing en­thu­si­asts, pas­sion­ate vol­un­teers, movie ex­perts, cu­ri­ous learn­ers, ded­i­cated em­ploy­ees and so many more.

“In­spi­ra­tional sto­ries of our com­mu­nity mem­bers abound and we are for­ever grate­ful for each and ev­ery one of them who make this place so spe­cial.”

The first of the FACES project has gone up on the GBPA’s Face­book page with a one minute video of Ka­t­rina McKen­zie.

Ms McKen­zie and hus­band Josh own The Real Gro­cer (for­merly Gib­bos Pantry) and are plan­ning a new fit out to in­clude a smoothie bar in 2019.

Ms McKen­zie said the cou­ple has been liv­ing at Golden Beach for about six months.

“We feel this is a great ini­tia­tive to bring peo­ple of the Golden Beach com­mu­nity to­gether and we are so pleased to be the first FACES of­fer­ing,” she said.

New FACES videos will be up­loaded to so­cial me­dia ev­ery two-three weeks.
