The Coolum-Peregian RSL is a small sub-branch which relies heavily on volunteers in order to run their activities which include welfare support for veterans, bar and dining with live music on Fridays, monthly Sundays on the Green, and the annual remembrance services for ANZAC and Remembrance Day. 

With no revenue from pokies, the club is actively seeking more volunteers to help out. Anyone who is interested is welcome to come along to the club on any Friday between 4-9pm to chat to the committee members about what is involved in volunteering, or contact the secretary at

Volunteering is rewarding and a great way to give back to the local community whilst also meeting new people.
