RBPOA litter pick-up
We aim to do a big litter pick-up in and around Rainbow Bay twice a year when most or all Members are on the island. Our last big clean-up was in February 2022 when the Queen's Highway was combed by volunteers. A big 'thank you' to those Members who kindly pick up litter on their own accord throughout the year, especially along Wandering Shore Drive, Rainbow Bay Beach and the Car Park. Let's try and keep our beautiful sub-division clean and tidy! All help is gratefully received, so please take a moment to pick up trash when you see it. Our next Litter Pick-Up has yet to be confirmed, the date will be posed in time for Members to plan accordingly.
RBPOA jumble sale fundraiser
We would like to establish an annual jumble sale (rummage sale) fundraiser which is held in the RBPOA Building along Lazy Shore Road. This is a great way for Members to donate and get rid of unwanted or unused items. Volunteers organize, sort and tag items for sale. This event is the Association's best fundraiser and we would love for it to be an annual event. Our last jumble sale in Spring 2022 was a great success. Much needed funds were raised to purchase the fire trailer and equipment for the neighborhood. The next jumble sale date will be confirmed and posted. Please hang on to your stuff for donation to the sale.
RBPOA members party
We are hoping to introduce an Annual Party to help bring our Members together to get acquainted. There are a lot of new homeowners in Rainbow Bay, and more coming. "Meet and Greets" can be so much fun! The event may be held on Rainbow Bay Beach/Nentwig Park or in our Association Building along Lazy Shore Road. Bring drinks and nibbles, mingle and have some fun! Stay tuned for more information.
