Membership Fees for 2022

At the General Meeting in September, it was decided by the membership to raise the Membership fee to $55 in 2022. At approximately $1 per week SCRDA feel this is still great value in comparison to other RDA Centres. New joiners who join in Term 4 of 2021 will also pay this fee but it will carry through till the end of 2022.

Scone Off and High Tea a HUGE Success!

The annual Scone Off and High Tea held in the undercover arena on Sunday 20th June was a fantastic event. Over 80 people enjoyed the fun and scones - so much so that they are already planning for next year's event! Many thanks to Martin Duncan, The Sunshine Coast Foodie,  for all his help in planning for this event.
On the day the overall champs were Mary Valley Country!

Containers 4 Change

Many of you would already know about this 10c recycling of containers program. We have now set up an area in the clubhouse for collecting these 10c refundable containers.
You can bring them into the Centre if you don't wish to recycle them yourself.
Alternatively, if you wish to take them to your nearest C4C centre and have the funds directed to SCRDA, our C4C number is C10473173.
Happy recycling!
