Wow! What a start to the year! I can hardly believe that we are in Muster week already! We have been so busy at the CRC doing all sorts of wonderful bits and pieces that we feel like we have almost missed half of the year!
We had some great kids in over the April school holidays, and I secretly think that our team had just as much fun as the kids in their crafty activities.
We’re excited to be able to let you know that we have been approved to keep up the Club Development program for the next financial year, thanks to a Department of Sport and Recreation Grant which funds Maria’s position to help all sporting groups and clubs in our communities here and in Wyndham. Check out what Maria’s up to by following the Club Development News on our website!
We are aiming to be in planning mode for the next financial year NOW, but are busily recruiting and placing all the volunteers who are needed to help make the Muster the fantastic celebration of East Kimberley life that it truly is! If you would like to volunteer for anything at the Kimberley Moon Experience on Saturday 21st, please head onto our website and register your interest! We are still looking for a community group or club who would like to help with the parking on the day – there’s $1000 available for the team who can help us out here!
Don’t forget to check out the exciting things we have coming up in June, our partnership with Kununurra Neighbourhood House and Ngala is sure to be a popular series, so make sure you keep an eye out for details on registering for those if you have a baby or toddler and have sleep challenges! Bella has recently joined our team and will be hosting some more introductory Mandarin cultural awareness and basic phrases classes in the very near future, so make sure you check our website and social media for those – register your interest with a quick email to us so that we can fit these in sooner rather than later!!
Finally I just need to thank our team at the CRC for their fabulous efforts over the last few months, as every business in town is noticing things are a little leaner than previously, and as a not for profit organisation we are feeling it too. We rely heavily on our voluntary board members to oversee the strategic direction of the CRC and make sure we are complying with all relevant needs and contracts, while our team on the ground (our friendly faces you get to see when you pop into the CRC!) have been amazing at rolling up their sleeves and making sure we are giving our community what they’re asking for!
Keep smiling, keep volunteering and keep loving living in the best part of Australia!
