About us

Who Are We?

Centenary Community Connections (CCC) is a not-for-profit, charity endorsed totally volunteer local community group that not only organises the ‘Centenary Rocks!’ festival, but also other events and activities including the Santa Sleigh at Christmas time which gives donations to local charities and are also the management committee for the Centenary Community Hub, aka The Hub, at Mt Ommaney. Music at the Hub evenings where we bring live easy listening, jazz or folk music to the suburbs has also become very popular events.

We also have community websites www.ccconnect.asn.au and www.centenaryrocks.com and www.centenaryhub.com.au and each activity has a Facebook page.



Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and all age groups but one thing in common is our interest in building the strength and resilience of the community.
