Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

AT OUR last meet­ing, we con­ducted our an­nual elec­tions night and long serv­ing Lion Bruce We­drat was elected pres­i­dent.

Is­abel Stu­art will be­come our new sec­re­tary, Lind­say Mars­den is as­sis­tant sec­re­tary and Tony Min­nis con­tin­ues as trea­surer. Doug Mc­Nally is our mem­ber­ship chair­man.

Tonight, we will be wel­com­ing vis­it­ing Lions and Lionesses from Ce­cil Plains, Dalby, Jandowae and Tara, the oc­ca­sion be­ing the of­fi­cial visit of our zone chair­man Lion Glenn Ship­way from Dalby.

Glenn is well known to many Chin­chilla lo­cals, hav­ing served here in the court house early in his ca­reer. We are look­ing for­ward to a very social and friendly meet­ing.

This com­ing week­end, it will be all hands on deck pre­par­ing goods for sale at our an­nual charity auction on April 21. Re­fer to our ad­ver­tise­ment in the clas­si­fied sec­tion, which itemises the goods go­ing up for auction.

To fa­cil­i­tate greater dis­play and safe stor­age, we are hold­ing our auction in the James Evans Pav­il­ion at the show­grounds. There will be plenty of park­ing and, as you will see from our ad­ver­tise­ment, this year’s of­fer­ing in­cludes col­lecta­bles and even an­tiques. We thank the Show Com­mit­tee for al­low­ing the us the use of its fa­cil­i­ties for the auction.

All the ac­tion is at the Show­grounds on Satur­day, April 21, with bid­der reg­is­tra­tion open at 8am. Drinks and re­fresh­ments will also be avail­able on the day and please re­mem­ber, all pro­ceeds – with the ex­cep­tion of the ad­ver­tis­ing costs – are utilised for lo­cal and na­tional hu­man­i­tar­ian pur­poses and causes.

’Til next week, take care, stay safe and re­mem­ber if you would like to find out what Lions do in the com­mu­nity, call Lind­say on 0427 656 201 and have a cof­fee and a chat or join us for din­ner.

Re­mem­ber, where there’s a need, there’s a Lion.
