Club Focus & Activities
Friendship and enjoyment are important to us. We hold regular social gatherings as well as participating in fund raising for community projects, where you can get to know more about your fellow members. Fund raising is an integral part of our focus. We have a catering facility at Nambour Showgrounds and provide the best steak burgers in the district for the Sunshine Coast Show and the Queensland Home Garden Expo. We also raise money through club activities such as fines of members (all in good fun), raffles, sausage sizzles at Bunnings and other specific events during the year.
To aid the community, we become involved in a variety of activities. Some past examples have been the supply of wheelchairs to Sundale Nursing Home, painting the Woombye Scout Hall, planting trees at Victory Park, sending a team to build a girl’s dormitory in Bema, PNG, sponsoring various local community groups, and we sponsored the chartering of a local Probus Club. We sponsor overseas students; send students to national science and youth development programs; We are involved in ‘Polio Plus’ (the worldwide eradication of Polio) and many more Rotary programs. If you are keen to make some contributions to the communities of Woombye and Palmwoods or other parts of the World, the Rotary Club of Woombye–Palmwoods is the place where this can happen.
These activities are managed by the Board of Directors under four “Avenues of Service” and are funded from funds raised at Club Projects. You can participate in Club Projects. We currently have many “Friends of Rotary” that help at our major fund raising projects.
Socially, we hold such events as Christmas-in-July, Movies, BBQ’s, weekends away (often mixed with a work project) – really any activities to which members agree. Members, Friends of Rotary, family and guests can attend any of our social events and participate in any of our projects.
