A special thank you to our dedicated volunteer Community
Bus Drivers, Youth Advisory Committee members and all other
service organisations and community committees. Volunteers are
the cog of our community- they keep the wheels moving.
EVERY country community has a
wide band of volunteers helping be-
hind the scenes to keep local events
running smoothly and facilities up to
Balaklava Community Caterers has
been providing a fantastic service at
the Balaklava Racing Club (BRC) for
more than 30 years, returning thousands
of dollars back into the pockets of local
charities and community groups.
BRC CEO, Doug Hall, said the ar-
rangement was unique to Balaklava, to
the best of his knowledge.
The community caterers consists of
fve different groups who volunteer their
time to cater for race meets during the year.
In return, the groups receive a ffth
of the annual profts from the catering
Balaklava Community Caterers is
made up of a core group of volunteers,
who co-ordinate the invited groups,
which in turn cook the food and then
sell for lunches at race meets.
"The arrangement goes back a hell of
a long time, well in excess of 30 years,"
Mr Hall said.
Depending on the year's results, com-
munity groups can expect to receive a
share from the annual take of between
$10,000 to $17,000.
"You multiply that sort of money over
more than 30 years and it's a lot of money
going back into the town," Mr Hall said.
"Over a previous decade, $150,000
was returned back to the community,
which is fantastic."
He felt the current arrangement
"We could try to get contractors in
but you wouldn't get that consistency
and this way, our country favour and
home cooked favour is maintained,”
Mr Hall explained.
Of particular note are the cakes that
come out following the main course.
"The lunches are quite nice but if
we did a survey on what was the best
thing about Balaklava's catering, most
would say it's the homemade cakes,"
Mr Hall said.
