DEPARTURES - SHINE JANG
Since 2013, I’m so blessed to be a part of the great Nambour Community Centre as a student, staff, volunteer and community member.
If anybody asks me what Nambour Community Centre is like I would say it is a place of belonging, growth, connections, caring for each other, deep listening and understanding, passion, love, empathy, authenticity, tears, vulnerability, warmth, compassion and so much other good stuff we love. Thankyou so much for being a great place for me to belong and grow and allowing me to be who I am. I wish you all the best.
I will still cheer for all the great work of NCC and its programs happening in the community that matters.
Shine Jang- CAMS Worker
DEPARTURES - LAWRENCE SEIULI
After 6 years of being on the management committee, 3 years as Chairman and over 10 years all up of being a volunteer, I decided 3 months ago to step down officially as Chairman as a Committee Member to focus on my other roles in the wider community.
I’ve enjoyed serving the centre and believe the current Committee Members, Staff and Volunteers will take the centre even further in serving the community.
I wish to thank all our Members, Staff, Volunteers and Committee Members for all you do for our Centre.
Lawrence Seiuli - Outgoing Chairman
