50th Anniversary – let’s get the party started!
Celebrations of the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast officially kicked off today with the announcement of the first round of the 50th Anniversary Fund grant recipients.
Eighteen community groups have been awarded grants for a diverse range of activities which will form part of the 50th Anniversary program of celebrations.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said the 50th Anniversary Fund was established to ensure there would be an engaging and exciting range of opportunities for the Sunshine Coast community to enjoy as the region celebrates the people, places and events that have contributed to the Coast’s story.
“We had an overwhelming response to the 50th Anniversary Fund with more than 30 local community groups applying to develop projects to be part of the celebrations,” Mayor Jamieson said.
