The Lions Club of Narromine would like to sincerely thank the community for its contribution towards the recent bushfire appeal.
A total of $3500 was raised and has been sent to Lions International (Australia) with the express wish that it be donated to the community of Coonabarabran.
Over one-and-a-half days members of the club collected outside the Narromine Newsagency and Coles and as always the generosity of our local community was outstanding. As well as locals, visitors also made contributions to this worthy cause.
At the last meeting of the club the general manager of the Narromine Shire Greg Lamont was guest speaker.
His presentation was both enlightening and informative and the club thanks Greg for his time and effort in presenting the vision of our shire.
The club welcomes Lion Neil Clarke and Lions Lady Yvonne from the Lions Club of Longreach. Lion Neil has recently transferred here to our club and has already offered his assistance in our many areas of fundraising for the local community.
We extend get well wishes to Lion Jeff Cook who has been in hospital recently after surgery on his hip.
Jeff has worked tirelessly in the area of service since joining the club and we wish him well in his convalescence.
The club will celebrate its 60th anniversary of charter this year with a weekend of activities on July 19-21.
A dinner at the USMC on the evening of the 20th will also welcome the new 2013/14 president and committee.
Lion FWS (Bill) Ballhausen is the only current serving charter member following the death of Lion Keith McLachlan (Dr Mac) last year. Invitations will be sent shortly to past members, current Lions members throughout District 201N4 and guests.
Lions meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month at the USMC with fellowship at 7pm followed by a dinner meeting at 7.30pm.
Interested community- minded people can contact president Lion Keith Elrington on 6889 4594 or membership chairperson Lion Vivienne Halbisch on 6889 2820.
New members are always welcome.
