The Currarong Progress Association, established in 1947, is an association of residents and ratepayers having a continuing interest in the Currarong area.
The primary objective of the Association is to promote the ongoing welfare of Currarong in all areas of Community interest. As the Community Consultative Body (CCB) to Shoalhaven City Council, the Association lobbies Council on behalf of its community members. It acts as a facilitator of two way communications mainly with Local Government staff and Councillors however as issues arise with State and Federal Governments, these can also be addressed through the Association.
We have been instrumental in encouraging the Shoalhaven City Council to spend funds in our township and approaches to improve our quality of life and have done since our inception.
The Progress Association is a non profit making organisation. It’s members all donate their time and services on a voluntary basis and raise money to continue the operation of the Association and assist with donations to various community groups and activities. Fund raising events such as bingo, hall hire and Christmas carols among others, support the community. The Progress Association continues to donate funds to the Callala Bay Public School; has built and paid for the building and updating of the Progress Hall; raised funds for the first Tennis Court in 1972; organised Government grants and donated monies towards the construction of the Skate Park in 2010/11 and has made many other donations too numerous to catalogue since its inception on the 27th February 1947.
The Association provides year round funding for the provision of Doggie Bags in the Village as no Council funds support this item. These can be found near the Rock Pool, at the shops and also at Peel St for the benefit of residents and visitors to Currarong with local volunteers looking after these dispensers.
Financial membership of the Association is encouraged and is open to all residents and rate payers of Currarong at an annual cost of $5. This allows you to be eligible to vote and to be an office holder in the organization and also gives you access to our regular email listings of Council and other correspondence, Minutes etc. Council media releases are posted in our “News” page on this website. You can attend and participate in the monthly meetings without being a financial member.
