Private Dayle William MORRISON

 Who was born in Maleny on 12 August 1945 and died during Operation Coburg on 26th January 1968.  He was a member of 2RAR.  He was laid to rest in the Garden of Remembrance at Mt Gravatt.  His Commemoration position is Wall 3 – Row E.

 A Mr Rob EADE is from Cessnock NSW and is travelling around Australia to present small flags to those fallen Veterans.  On Friday 28th July 2017, Rob attended the RSL Maleny Sub Branch Memorial Hall to present a small handheld Flag in memory of Dayle.  Without this information from Rob we would not have known that Dayle has a link with Maleny.  Some members of 2RAR Association were in attendance of the presentation.

Finance and Sustainability Expo

For a healthier and wealthier community.

Saturday 23rd July – 9 am till 3 pm at Maleny Showgrounds Pavilion.

This exciting event is an initiative of Maleny Commerce and sponsored by Sunshine Coast Council and Maleny Credit Union.

Designed to educate the Sunshine Coast community to better understand all things financial and how to move towards living a more sustainable lifestyle, it has something for everyone. The expo gives professionals, businesses and groups that work in finance and around sustainability the opportunity to be part of the event by way of exhibiting.  People attending the expo will get all their questions about finance answered and be able to talk to people that build, live, buy and sell sustainably.

Have a look at our fantastic poster for the event, created by local graphic designer Jenny Kemp.

Harmony Day in Maleny 2016 : Harmony Day is being celebrated all over Australia on Monday 21st March 2016.

Harmony Day - Everyone Belongs

Students from Maleny Primary School and the River School are learning their songs for the Harmony Day community performance.

With the help of Sweet Chilli choir members, Stephanie Arlidge and Lisa McDonald, they are practicing three songs;  one from Kenya;  another incorporating four prayers in different languages, and John Lennon’s song “Imagine” which will take your breath away.

The performances will begin at the Maleny Library at 10:45 am, then outside the Maleny Community Centre and conclude at The Maleny Neighbourhood Centre.  We welcome the people of Maleny to come along and enjoy the performances.

The students from both schools will be involved in creating artwork for an exhibition in the town library.

An annual ‘free dress’ day will be held and gold coin contribution will be donated to BUDDIES, a local organisation that supports refugees and people seeking asylum.

The students from both schools will be creating their own special message to add to our Community Heart, showing diversity is our strength because together we can change the world.
