Yarrunga Community Centre AGM

By March 17, 2010March 22nd, 2010No Comments

Yarrunga Community Centre opened in 1996 and is a not-for-profit community organisation, located in Croydon Hills.  Like other community centres within Maroondah, the organisation is overseen by a voluntary committee of management,. with operational decisions delegated to the staff.

Tonight’s annual general meeting included a presentation from a Whitehorse sustainability ambassador, who spoke of initiatives to reduce water consumption, particularly through developing a sustainable garden.

Yarrunga has a strong focus on sustainability and recently installed solar panels to reduce its environmental footprint.  In addition the Centre is planning to install water tanks to reduce the Centre’s usage of potable water.

Yarrunga offers a diverse range of activities, including adult education, social programs and an Early Learning Centre.  For further information please visit
