Hard yakka pays off

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THEEidsvold Lions Club has a phys­i­cal pres­ence in the town again.

It opened a shel­ter shed com­plete with bar­be­cue fa­cil­i­ties, tables, seat­ing and a rain­wa­ter tank in the grounds of the RM Wil­liams Aus­tralian Bush Learn­ing Cen­tre.

Many years ago the Lions Park in Eids- vold was re­sumed for the con­struc­tion of the town’s swim­ming pool.

The new project was a com­bined ef­fort by Eidsvold Lions, North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil and QGC which pro­vided most of the fund­ing.

More than $30,000 was pro­vided by QGC’s Sus­tain­able Com­mu­ni­ties’ fund and Lions con­trib­uted $5300 in kind (268 man­hours) and $344 to com­plete the fa­cil­ity which is avail­able for lo­cals and trav­ellers to use.

Mayor Don Waugh is a mem­ber of Gayn­dah Lions and he con­grat­u­lated Eidsvold Lions for the valu­able ad­di­tion to the North Bur­nett community as­sets.
