Whitsunday Regional Council today approved a $20,000 Special Projects Grant to the Proserpine Whitsunday Junior Rugby League Club to convert their storage shed into a clubhouse.
Councillor for Division 3 John Collins said that the club is celebrating its 50 year anniversary this year and the conversion of the shed will provide the perfect location to host their Golden Jubilee Reunion from 8 to 9 July.
“The upgrade will see a more modern and functional space and provide a welcoming multi-purpose facility for players, members, supporters and visitors to utilise and enjoy,” Cr Collins said.
“It will be the perfect facility to showcase the clubs history for their golden jubilee celebrations and to hold functions in the future,” he said.
“It is wonderful that we can provide this type of support to facilitate the enhancement of the club and its appeal and potentially draw more members and supporters from within the community.”
