Cel­e­brat­ing 100 years of great Lions work

Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

OUR sin­cere thanks to our vis­it­ing speak­ers from Mates in Con­struc­tion for shar­ing their sto­ries with us at the Mate­ship Mat­ters Night we hosted last Thurs­day evening.

Our thanks to On­site Rentals too who gen­er­ously do­nated a light tower for the event, which was held at our Lions Den in Mutch Street. Their sup­port of this wor­thy cause is much ap­pre­ci­ated.

All those who attended the evening got some­thing from it and we heard a lot of how much we need to sup­port one another. Our bar­be­cue went down well and our chef Pres­i­dent Ivan did us proud.

It is planned to hold a fol­low-up event in a few months time.

Our Jump­ing Cas­tle will be back in ac­tion this week and we apol­o­gise to those would be pa­trons who have been dis­ap­pointed in the past weeks, but after eight years, ma­jor re­pairs and main­te­nance be­came very nec­es­sary.

If you would like to make a book­ing – and Christ­mas is rapidly ap­proach­ing, so get in early – please call Lion Doug on 4662 7598.

To­day the Se­niors Step in to Spring Expo is on at the Cul­tural Centre and our Lions Christ­mas Cakes will be on sale. This year, Lions Clubs In­ter­na­tional cel­e­brate our 100 years of ser­vice, and we have a Lions Cen­ten­nial Cake tin avail­able for that some­thing special. This gold coloured tin, with the Lions logo em­bossed on the lid, comes com­plete with a Lions Christ­mas Cake. We will have these avail­able on our stand at the Expo to­day.

A re­minder that our Lions Ladies’ Movie Premier Night will be on next Thurs­day, Au­gust 31, start­ing at 6pm. The movie showing will be The Big Sick and tick­ets can be pre-pur­chased from One Hour Pho­tos, or will be avail­able at the door.

This is a com­edy/ro­mance and has re­ceived very good re­views so go and en­joy the pre-movie nib­blies be­fore the movie. Price will be $20.00 for the evening. Please call Jane Hoff­mann on 4662 7047 for more info.
