Com­mu­nity Board hard at work in back­ground

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

In this ca­pac­ity, we have a set cri­te­ria to meet prior to funds be­ing granted and a lim­ited bud­get within which we op­er­ate.

The two ma­jor pub­lic Com­mu­nity events our Board sup­ports an­nu­ally are the Te Awa­mutu Christ­mas Pa­rade and the Te Awa­mutu Com­bined Churches Light Party held in Sel­wyn Park.

These two events are granted a sub­stan­tial part of our an­nual al­lo­ca­tion and in fact place the Board in the po­si­tion of be­ing the ma­jor sin­gle cash spon­sor of both events.

In the past, this crit­i­cal sup­port has not been ac­knowl­edged and has been lost in the mar­ket­ing and pub­lic­ity of both of these com­mu­nity events.

Much of what the Board mem­bers do for the com­mu­nity is done away from the pub­lic eye, either in af­ter hours meet­ings at­tend­ing var­i­ous club AGMs or work­ing with smaller groups to steer them in the right di­rec­tion when a project re­quires sup­port.

Most vol­un­teer or­gan­i­sa­tions within our com­mu­nity have ben­e­fited from cash grants pro­vided by the Com­mu­nity Board at some stage.

Our Board al­ways ap­pre­ci­ates ac­knowl­edge­ment for its ef­forts and con­tri­bu­tion to our com­mu­nity.
