At the heart of Tewantin and Noosa lies the Tewantin Noosa RSL, an organisation renowned for its unwavering commitment to the well-being and development of the local community.

This organisation plays a crucial role in supporting local groups, schools, and organizations that benefit the community, alongside a steadfast dedication to assisting veterans.

The Tewantin Noosa RSL’s recent initiatives highlight the breadth of its support.

A notable example is their donation to the Yandina 128 Army Cadets, aiding in the purchase of a club trailer. This contribution is not merely a gesture; it is an investment in the future leaders of the community. The Yandina Cadets, like many youth organisations supported by the RSL, provide invaluable training and life skills that will benefit society for years to come.

Beyond their youth-focused efforts, the Tewantin Noosa RSL’s support for veteran service organisations remains a cornerstone of their mission. The Tewantin Noosa RSL Club have confirmed financial support for veteran organisation such as Mates 4 Mates, Soldier On, and Legacy, among others, to ensure veterans receive comprehensive support.

These partnerships facilitate a range of services, from mental health support to physical rehabilitation, reflecting a holistic approach to veteran care.

Closer to home, the Tewantin Noosa Sub-Branch benefits from the Clubs ongoing support which includes providing premises for the veterans Men’s Shed and meeting space in the CWA Hall for the Vietnam Veterans, and Veterans Yoga.

The Club recognises that these programs are essential in providing veterans with a sense of comradery, belonging and purpose, aiding in their transition to civilian life and fostering enduring friendships.

The Tewantin Noosa RSL Club is not just an organisation; it is a vital part of the community’s fabric.

Their efforts are directed towards creating a supportive, vibrant, and inclusive community for all. Whether through supporting local cadets, aiding veteran service organisations, or providing a haven for veterans, the RSL continues to make a significant positive impact.

Recently the Club began hosting a Veterans Appreciation Day lunch, with the next event scheduled for Tuesday 16 July. If you are a veteran and are interested in joining other like-minded veterans over a meal and a possible beer or two, please contact the Club to register your interest addressed to Amanda at marketing@noosarsl.com.au.

As the community looks to the future, the Tewantin Noosa RSL Club stands as a beacon of support for both the community and veterans.

They invite everyone to join in their mission, engage with their programs, and help build a stronger, more united community.
