Rotary Club of Alexandra Headland
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service in the community and help build goodwill and peace in the world. It was this branch that pushed for the support of the Energex Rescue Helicopter through donations on our electricity bill. They co-ordinate Clean Up Australia Day at Alex along with many other activities. The Alexandra Headland branch was formed in 2000 and meet at Headland Golf Club.
Street Angels is a volunteer public based safety service for individuals in need with a particular focus on young people who need non-judgemental care. Although based mainly in Mooloolaba, they do patrols along Alexandra Parade on Friday & Saturday nights.

The Korean War Veterans Association of Sunshine Coast Inc was formed in 1996 to look after the interests of Korean War Veterans on the Sunshine Coast. In 2000 Maroochy Council agreed to let them establish a memorial in the Alex Bluff Park at the top of Alexandra Headland, and it has become a very special place for members of this group to remember their loved ones, and all those who served in Korea.
Currently the association boasts 24 members (one of whom lives in Alexandra Headland), and they meet bi-monthly at the Caloundra RSL. A small service is held at Alexandra Headland each year on Anzac Day followed by a re-union lunch for members.
For further information on the Association please contact the President Mr Edmund (Ted) Parkinson on 3203 2952 or write to PO Box 179, Deception Bay. Qld 4508.
