The Yarrawonga Aquatic and Recreation Club Needs You

For many years the communities of Yarrawonga and Mulwala have agreed that a heated indoor pool is a high priority. Families involved in Basketball are also aware of a crying needfor a properly compliant stadium.

The Yarrawonga Mulwala Strategic Development Team identified a sporting complex comprising all year indoor swimming and sports stadium as a high priority for our
community. The Yarrawonga Aquatic and Recreational Committee (YARC) was formed, the main drivers coming from the Rotary Club of Yarrawonga-Mulwala and representatives from Yarrawonga Mulwala Basketball Association, Yarrawonga Mulwala Swimming Club and Yarrawonga Mulwala Development Inc. A community survey to gauge support received a huge response, which demonstrated the wide ranging support and depth of feeling about the need for such a resource.

Members of the YARC Committee made a presentation to the Moira Shire (pre Council election) and lobbied local candidates during the recent election campaign. They met with some local school principals and visited many similar centres to gather ideas and a three-year plan was developed to complete this project.

YARC is in the process of becoming a legally incorporated body, Yarrawonga Aquatic and Recreation Club Inc. (YARC Inc.) The next step is to hold a Public Meeting in the Yarrawonga Town Hall on the 8th of February at 7.30pm, to present the plan, obtain community feedback and capture ideas to ensure The Centre comes to fruition.
We hope you will come along and show your support for a year-round aquatic and multi-sport stadium, and demonstrate the community’s true commitment. You will also have the opportunity to join the Yarrawonga Aquatic and Recreation Club Inc., and in so doing show your personal commitment and be kept fully up to date on all future developments.

Please publicise this meeting among your friends and colleagues, and feel free contact one of the committee listed above, for further information.
