New faces to lead community centre
A BRAND new committee has stepped up at Dimbulah Community Centre after the organisation almost fell due to a lack of volunteers at the beginning of the year.
At their second AGM, it was Gary Boswell who stepped up as president and Tabbetha Reed following as vice president.
Chermay Girgenti has also stepped up in the secretary role and Kylie Boswell has taken on the role of treasurer.
“Securing a volunteer committee for any or-ganisation is always a challenge, the Dimbulah Community Centre came up against that very challenge earlier this year after the AGM held on the 18 January 2023,” Mr Boswell said.
“The new executive committee appointed at the second AGM on the 9 February 2023 are dedi-cated to serving the community and are excited to see what we can achieve in 2023 and beyond.”
The community centre hosts programs like which include the services of early years place professionals, a speech and language therapist, occupational therapist, psychologist for education and development and many other professionals.
The centre also participates in a swath of events include a meet and greet group each Friday, Harmony Day, Christmas under the stars, Australia Day, family fun day, biggest morning tea and more.
Mr Boswell said the new committee was looking forward to hosting these events again and creating new ones for the community to enjoy.
One of their main focuses as a committee though is to build awareness of the early years program.
“Our focus is to build awareness of the Early Years Program that we deliver for all children ages 0-8 years,” he said.
“Our goal is to encourage parents and carers to attend our Early Years Place activities and programs such as playgroups, parenting workshops and allied health services.”
The community centre relies on the funding and donations from the community and are al-ways accepting donations.
