Jieh community centre fund raiser

Post by Abou Jamra »

I ask the AJCC to take the following request into consideration.

I have been in contact with members of the youth in jieh and they have raised concern over the lack of funding and the poor maintenance of the community centre there. We have put together a proposal and i have been asked to put it forward to the AJCC and the AJYC.

Amount required is AU$1000. The funds will be used for the following purposes.

1) Part time employee who will administer the centre over the summer break.

2) Purchase of sporting equipment.

3) Internet connection

4) DVD player and DVD's

5) Purchase of confectionary items ie. soft drinks, chocolate bars etc... which will be sold at retail price.

6) Purchase of smoke pipes (argile)

I suggest the AJCC open its doors on Wed night the 11th of June and host a BBQ fundraiser on State of Origin night game 2 so that we may be able to raise the funds required. Many will be spending the summer in jieh this year lets get together and support this cause.

I am willing to make the first contribution of $100.

The AJCC or AJYC can take control of this initiative they can raise the funds and forward the money to the youth in Lebanon at the earliest possible convenience. If anybody wants to know who i discussed this with can send me a private message. We agreed (although we haven't discussed it with him yet but i am sure he wont mind) that the money be sent to George Farha Azzi who will then forward the money to those responsible.

thanks for your consideration please get back to us asap.

AJ, thanks for bringing this up. Do you know if they ever fixed the bathroom fixtures? 4-5 years ago they were in pieces and there was no water to wash or flush!

IMO, fixing the sanitary equipment and making water available at all times should be a priority.

Yes Boulos fixed them last year, they were working fine. Not sure what has happened since. Rusted perhaps due to the lack of use.

Are you sure all they need is $1000? That sounds pretty cheap to me. I don't think we even need to make a fundraiser for this, I will mention it in the next meeting.

what do you mean you're not sure we even need a fundraiser for this? ha ha ha ha Jieh people need a fundraiser for everything, you should have heard the tightasses recently at a "village do" complaining behind me about a $30 entrance fee which gets them food, dessert and drinks! How embarrassing! :lol:
