The Caloundra Chamber of Commerce is throwing open the doors to their August Business After Hours networking event on Tuesday 29 August 2017 to celebrate the release of the publication 'Caloundra: The Past 100 Years'.
The event will showcase the new book 'Caloundra, The Past 100 Years' that marks the centenary since the subdivision of the Bulcock family estate into parcels of land at Bulcock Beach, Bulcock Street and in between.
The Chamber will be joined by the book’s authors Anne Wensley and John and Janice Groves who live and breathe Caloundra history.
Caloundra’s centenary milestone has captivated these local historians who have scoured heritage collections for the last twelve months while the rest of the region was turning towards major celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the region’s renaming from the Near North Coast to the Sunshine Coast.
2017 has turned out to be a year of celebrations for not only Caloundra, but the Sunshine Coast and a great opportunity to reflect on the changes over the decades, 100 years of commerce in Caloundra and what lies ahead.
The networking event will be held at one of Caloundra’s new restaurants, The Corner Pocket Bar & Grill, just a stone’s throw from the original Bulcock homestead overlooking the Pumicestone Passage.
Bookings for the event can be made online at www.caloundrachamber.com.au/events or phone the office on 5492 5977.
