There's something that only we can do, for ourselves and our community. That's to turn aside at times from the hustle to clean tanks or chase grants. Let's listen to others, be still, and let ourselves work through the impact of a surprising, difficult, tiring start to 2020.
You can make a difference...
As with any place with a small population, there's always more that could be done and not many people to do it.
So if it's not all happening the way you'd like - get in and have a go. You could make Adaminaby, Shannons Flat or Anglers Reach a better place for everyone!
It's our district & its future is in our hands.
We're told that the old town had a strong spirit of sharing, of belonging, of true community. That's a heritage to value. It's also a vision for our future.

Sport & Recreation Facilities
The Lake Eucumbene Chamber of Commerce is preparing a proposal for upgrade of Seymour Park, which we understand was originally a gift to the town from Snowy Hydro. We'd love to hear your input. The community needs to be united in our lobbying to make the most of this park for our children, grandchildren & visitors.
Cooma Monaro Rail Trail
Rail trails in other districts have become a drawcard & a fun way for the family to spend the day. Is it a good idea for our region?
The Cooma Monaro Rail Trail proposal is at the feasibility study stage. You can submit your comments or get involved in other ways.
The Snowy 2.0 main works environmental impact statement is out and available for comment.
The impacts of Snowy 2.0 on our region could be tremendous - improved infrastructure & services, employment/contract opportunities, more visitors and growth in permanent population. Lake Eucumbene Chamber of Commerce (LECC) is working closely with other community groups and with Snowy Hydro and the contractors, Future Generation JV for the best results for our area.
If you would like your business to be involved and informed, join the LECC.
