Position vacant at PCYC
AFTER almost five years in charge, Paul McAra will today spend his final moments as manager of Coffs Harbour Police and Community Youth Club (PCYC) doing one of the city's most challenging and valuable roles.
During his time at the top McAra has seen the club celebrate its 10th anniversary, win a series of awards and achieve the target of having 1000 junior members.
“It has been a wonderful time and although it isn't always easy, the job has always been satisfying and rewarding,” he said.
“I've really enjoyed the challenges but the time has come to move on.
“Applications have been called for a replacement and I believe the Board will announce a replacement some time in the next few weeks.”
McAra will be joining the ETC organisation in coming days.
“Getting the building renovations complete was one of the biggest achievements,” he said.
“It's allowed many more young people to become involved with the club, giving the community the many social benefits that go with that.”
Two major 'Blue Heelers Awards' have been received for Club of the Year and Employee of the Year.
But of all the good moments, McAra has happy memories of the involvement of Gold Coast Titans rugby league star, Preston Campbell.
“Preston is a very special, very unique person,” he said, “and when he visited the response was fantastic.”
