Rushworth & District Community Bank hosted its seventeenth AGM on 20 November with Chair Christine Borger announcing a strong, profitable 2019 and a 6 cent fully franked dividend to shareholders.

There was a positive and upbeat atmosphere as the achievements of the community and the Community Bank over the previous 12 months, were celebrated.

The audience heard from Sadie Vale as she walked them through the Colbinabbin Silo Art project, from idea inception to project completion, and celebrated over $60,000 invested into the district for the 2019 financial year.

The board awarded its first Community Spirit Award to Maz Thomas, recognising her incredible volunteerism within the Rushworth community over many years, notably her management of the Easter Festival Parade, the Draught Horse Muster, the work at the Moora Reserve and everything in between.

The board would like to thank all community volunteers who work so tirelessly in our community to ensure we keep our towns sustainable and vibrant – our volunteers running our sporting clubs and community groups work hard to keep our towns places we want to be.

The board also wishes to thank all shareholders and customers for their ongoing support of the Community Bank; the Rushworth & District Community Bank could not operate without this support that enables it to invest into our community.
