A New Year a NEW Grant!

With Stage 1 of the club house renovations completed we're delighted to advise the club has been successful in securing a "NEW" grant which will support a large portion of the internal club refurbishment.

All our grants would not have been made possible without the hard work of our very own Liz O'Brien - THANKS LIZ! 

It's great to have continued progress and we can't wait to see the end result, this will make a proud club even prouder.  

A big word of thanks to the Brisbane City Council, stage 2 of our renovations are being made possible through the BCC grants scheme. The Zillmere Eagles greatly appreciate BCC's continued support across this long awaited project. 

You've got to love the blue & gold BCC logo!
