Prior to the festive season, Lion Stella Jackson worked extremely hard compiling a great Christmas hamper to raffle, with proceeds going to Camp Quality. With the help of other Lions, an amazing amount of $1,540.95 was raised.
Lion Paul Fox decided to grow his beard and hair to do a “shave” for charity also. The Bowlo Sports & Leisure Yamba allowed him to go around the Club with a bucket prior to Friday night raffles commencing. This was very successful, as he collected $659.05; then following completion of the raffles, Karen Seymour (owner of Pure Hair at Yamba Fair), carried out the removal of both the hair and beard. (I must say, Paul looked so much better after).
These two amounts allowed the Club to send a cheque for $2,200 to Camp Quality ‘Kids with Cancer’.
President Judy would like to thank all Lions Club members who gave of their time during the holidays. As well as their normal Thursday night raffles at the Golf Club and Friday night raffles at the Bowlo Sports & Leisure Yamba, they were busy with the monthly markets and the Rotary Street Carnival.
Bingo is held at the Bowlo on Monday mornings and Tuesday evenings and these sessions are always busy with holiday makers.
During most of the holidays throughout the year, the Club cooks pancakes at the Blue Dolphin Caravan Park every Thursday morning. This is always very popular with the holiday makers.
Member meetings re-commence February 14.
