Refurbishment closes Yeppoon RSL for 12 weeks

YEPPOON RSL will close from Saturday for major refurbishment over the next 12 weeks.

These works will include the building which was formerly known as the CWA building.

The refurbishment will include external and internal works with roof modifications, new toilets, new kitchen, new bar, new cool room and training and interview facilities for service members and veterans.

The RSL performs an important role in the community in looking after veterans, their families and current and service members.

As a not for profit organisation all monies are directed toward their primary role but the buildings are well past their use by date and the refurbishment is essential.

The project has been made possible by a loan from Queensland Branch and the hard work of volunteers who spend many hours selling raffle tickets or the wonderful people who work tirelessly to provide hospitality to members and their guests.

Senior vice president and chair of the building committee Paul Lancaster said Friday night's farewell bash to the old building should be fun and they expected a lot of members to attend.
