FEATURE FACES PROJECT
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.
