A century of celebrations
I was delighted to attend the ‘Back to Glass House Day’ with the Mayor in honour of the Glass House Mountains Community Hall celebrating 100 years of service. It was a perfect opportunity to chat about our local history beautifully captured in the many great displays showing achievements that often take generations to unfold. I was pleased that a council grant helped provide the funds to produce the book on the History of the Hall. The committee did a fantastic job and were very pleased that it was a ‘packed to the rafters’ event. The raffle made just under $700, and book sales just under $1,200, a fantastic effort with all funds raised to benefit the Hall’s future projects.

Your Transport Levy funds in action!
Are you 60-and-over, have a disability or mobility impairment? You may be able to access council’s Council Link transport service through ComLink. The service, funded through the Transport Levy, collects eligible residents from their home and drives them to their local transport hub/ shopping/civic centre and return. To arrange the service, phone 5390 1288 by noon the day before your planned trip. For eligibility criteria, the schedule and suburbs, visit www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au and search for “council link”.
I recently attended council’s launch of the draft ‘Think’ Caloundra Centre Master Plan. I know many Division 1 residents feel a strong connection to Caloundra and will want to have their say on what’s planned. I encourage you all to visit the project website ‘Have Your Say Sunshine Coast’ to provide your comments by Friday, October 7. It is also on display at the Beerwah Library.
Come say hello
My next ‘Meet and Greet’ session will be at the Bellvista Meeting Place, 18 Lomond Crescent, Caloundra West on Friday, October 14, 11am – 1pm, come along for a chat about local issues and council projects.
