Hard yakka pays off
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.
