Volunteers, community supporters and sponsors gathered this morning to celebrate the C.C.S.A. Hall’s first make over since the mid-1990s thanks to painting supplies donated by Dulux and Bunnings Caloundra.
State Member for Caloundra and C.C.S.A. Executive Committee Member Mark McArdle said the hall was an integral part of the community and the fresh coat of paint would benefit both the facility and everyone who enjoyed its services.
“The Hall is important to so many in the community but it has been a very long time since the building has been painted,” Mr McArdle said.
“Everything is looking fresh and new which I am certain the volunteers, staff and patrons will be very pleased with.”
Frank Gower, another C.C.S.A. Executive Committee Member said the committee approached Bunnings Caloundra when they knew it was time to give the older Hall a mini-makeover.
“The C.C.S.A. is run by the community, for the community and as a community we knew it was about time that the whole building received a little love in the way of a fresh coat of paint,” Mr Gower said.
“We approached Howard Montgomery from Bunnings Caloundra earlier this year with our plan to repaint the Hall knowing they support similar community projects. Howard made contact with Ken Feeney at Dulux, and together they were instrumental in putting the wheels in motion to make this happen.”
Dulux Sale Executive Ken Feeney said the building required about $1,500 worth of paint but it was exactly the kind of community project the company liked to support.
“Dulux is an Australian company and we support many local community projects such as the surf clubs and other community spaces,” Mr Feeney said.
“As Sales Executives we are able to select a number of projects to support each year and when I heard the C.C.S.A. Hall was looking for support I was happy to put the project forward for sponsorship.”
“Thank you to Dulux and Bunnings Caloundra for their support of this project and congratulations to everyone at involved with the Hall, which is now deservedly up-to-date with the local streetscape,” Mr McArdle concluded.
