Serving the Community since 1951
We have sponsored many new Clubs, and have undertaken an almost countless number and range of projects over the years.
We enjoy our activities which allow us to interact with our community, especially our younger members. For example, last eighteen months, our Club cooked early dinner BBQs at the request of the QPRC for events including a skateboard coaching session, and two basketball competitions, both in Queanbeyan outdoor sporting venues.
We have recently arranged with 3 local high schools to hold a driver education awareness program for Year 11 students in May 2024, called U Turn The Wheel (UTTW). The 2024 UTTW course will be a Pilot, with 5 Presenters at this stage.

RCQ cares for Home in Queanbeyan's gardens
Staring this year, our club will be looking after the gardens at Home in Queanbeyan. The photo shows our first job, which involved a fair bit of trimming, and the grass was nearly knee-high, thanks to the amount of rain we'd been having. We'll be returning regularly to keep the gardens in good condition
Welcome to our new members Tracy & Darren
First Tracy on 27 September, then Darren on 8th November, were formally inducted into our club in 2023. Both were wholeheartedly welcomed by all members of the club.
Both Tracy and Darren have already proven themselves to be huge assets to our club, working Market BBQ's, the Floriade Gnomes in September 2023, and the 2023 Queanbeyan Show Gates.
The photos show Tracy, and Darren, with President Rod at our dinner venue, the Queanbeyan RSL Memorial Bowling Club.
Our fund-raising efforts during each year provide us with significant funds which we usually disburse as part of our Changeover Program in June each year.
We also provide a range of community services (ie not fund-raising), and enjoy our interaction with our community.
This includes activities such as cooking bbq’s for the NAIDOC week, cooking breakfast for students attending the Fit For Life Program at the PCYC every Thursday morning (the 7am start can be a little daunting in winter!!), doing upgrades to local playgrounds (ie Ernie Beaver Park), provision of Dream Cricket Kits for local kids with special needs, supporting the local Council when they ask us to run BBQs for community events, and many more.
We will continue working within our community to support those in need, and to raise funds for specific programs and projects.
