Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of joining with Hon Lisa Neville MP, Minister for Police, Minister for Water and Member for Bellarine as she announced a $ 1.5M Victorian Government contribution to the new Clubhouse project.
The $1.5M funding announcement is the largest single financial contribution the Club has received from the Victorian Government in our 70 years of operation and provides a welcome "kick start" to our fundraising efforts.
This significant contribution from the Victorian Government will help to see our plans (which are set to receive planning approval from the Borough of Queenscliffe any day now) move much closer to becoming a reality.
In the second half of this year, members, the local community and corporate organisations will have the opportunity to assist with this vital project and help turn the plans into reality. The New Clubhouse Capital Campaign Committee will undertake an intensive effort to seek donations and more information will be available in coming months.
