The first event to be staged on the new stage, to be officially opened on 1st December, the Buderim Community Carols, will be again hosted by the BWMCA and Buderim Bendigo Community Bank and is shaping up to be the best event yet.

Mooloolaba Yacht Club opens new clubroom at The Wharf Mooloolaba

The Mooloolaba Yacht Club has now opened a new, larger clubroom as part of The Wharf Mooloolaba’s revitalisation.

Evans Long director Dirk Long said bringing the community back to the precinct and opening it up to the river were key aspects of plans for The Wharf to once again become the heart of Mooloolaba and the Sunshine Coast.

“The Mooloolaba Yacht Club is a leading member of the Coast’s sailing community,” Mr Long said.

Old Solider to be remembered

John Dahl of Buderim was 44 years old and let it be known when he signed up for the Australian army in 1916 that he was disappointed that the younger generation were obviously “…too scared and not patriotic enough“ to join the fight.

His life, and death, in action will be recalled at this year’s Buderim Remembrance Day commemoration on November 11.

Each year the Buderim War Memorial Community Association’s ANZAC and Remembrance Day Committee chooses a Buderim Hero to be remembered along with over 60,000 of his comrades who died in World War 1.

Lunch en Blanc comes to Buderim

Buderim’s first annual Lunch en Blanc will be held at Bloomhill Function Centre on Sunday 19 November from 12pm and you’re invited to help raise money for the Foundations’ community investment fund.

Foundation Event Committee chair, Lloyd Edwards said the luncheon was inspired by the original Parisian picnic, Lunch en Blanc which bears a rich European history.

“With attendees invited to dress in white, those with a penchant for the finer things in life will come together, equipped with a bountiful picnic basket for an afternoon of fine food and great company,” Mr Edwards said.

The restaurants are part of a $10million refurbishment project for The Wharf precinct, according to Dirk Long, co-owner of Evans Long.

The Spending Planners Institute is empowering Australians to help others take financial control

SPENDING is easy but what is more difficult for most people is planning your spending so you can reach your own financial goals – which is something the Spending Planners Institute is trying to change.

The Spending Planners Institute’s David Wright taking clients through their spending plan.

According to Institute Founding Director David Wright, there is not enough education provided about how to effectively manage our money, while working towards our own financial goals.

“School students are taught a lot of different skills in preparation for life but it has always amazed me that they are not taught effective spending planning,” Mr Wright said.
