BLOCK work for the Nelson Reserve soundshell started last week, seeing the Rotary initiative finally nearing completion.
But project manager Jerry Crotty said although the first stage was almost finished, donations were still needed so a roof could be put on the stage.
Two weeks ago, Skill Centred staff and Apex volunteers completed the concrete floor of the soundshell along with Complete Costal Construction employees.
Mr Crotty said a reasonable amount of money was still needed before the roof could go on but the soundshell was able to be used now the block work had been completed.
A Rotary concept, the project took three years to finally get off the ground.
The outdoor performance stage is a community project managed by Skill Centred Queensland.
