We were looking forward to the Let's Go Sunshine Coast Caravan & Outdoor Expo coming to Nambour Showgrounds this weekend but due to Covid uncertainty the event had to be cancelled.
The expo was held for the first time in Nambour in 2019 and the Rotary Club of Nambour76 were happy to help with car parking in the Nambour Crushers Rugby League grounds. The funds raised were distributed to various local and world wide causes.
This year, when Caravanning Queensland announced the cancellation we were pleasantly surprised to receive a donation of $1000 from Caravanning Queensland to partly compensate for the revenue lost.
We have decided to send this money on to Rotary District 9620 Drought Relief Program which has been operating through much of Queensland since 2014.
This document - Rotary District 9620 Drought Relief Program July 2021 explains the scope and operation of the scheme. It will take a while to read but it's well worth the effort.
Thank you Caravanning Queensland
The Rotary Club of Nambour 76 has sponsored two scholarships for students starting study at Sunshine Coast University in 2020. Each scholarship will be for a maximum of 4 years at $5000 per year and they will provide a supplement to the students' income to help with living expenses while studying. The students will be selected by the university with the only prerequisite that they be from the Nambour area and have graduated from high school within the last two years.
One scholarship will be named the Bob Sellars - Rotary Club of Nambour76 Scholarship in memory of Bob, a long time member of our club and resident of Nambour. Bob spent all his working life as an employee of the Commonwealth Bank and after many moves around Queensland and New South Wales a transfer to Nambour as the manager of the local bank saw him settling in Mapleton. He was a long serving member of many Rotary Clubs the most recent being the Rotary Club of Nambour 76 where he served on the board in various roles. He was ably assisted by his very supportive wife Lex. Bob was a great proponent of higher education and he would be delighted to see his interest being extended through this scholarship. Sadly, Bob passed away in 2019.
The other scholarship is the Errol Gibbins - Rotary Club of Nambour 76 scholarship. Errol was a businessman in Forest Glen in the mid 1900's, running Forest Glen Poultry for many years. His son, Steve is a former member of The Rotary Club of Nambour 76 and has always been a generous donor to club causes.
The families of Bob Sellars and Errol Gibbins have both contributed financially to the scholarships as has Downing & Lindner Accountants and The Rotary Club of Nambour 76.



At our meeting this week we had the pleasure of hosting Dale and Donna Dowler from The Shack. In between a commercial for the Shack's "Tree of Hope" initiative and an update from Dale on some plans for the future, President Graham Robertson presented Dale and Donna with a cheque to help out with their Christmas expenses.
