The Li­ons Club of Nagam­bie and District held its 2017 changeover din­ner on Fri­day.

Strath­bo­gie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren and Cr Deb Swan con­grat­u­lated the club on their com­mu­nity ef­forts.

Club pres­i­dent Mar­garet Wil­son handed out cheques to com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Nagam­bie Health­Care ac­tiv­i­ties group, the ten­nis club, ceme­tery trust, the Bailieston, Wahring and Nagam­bie Fire Brigades, Nagam­bie Golf Club, Nagam­bie Bowl­ing Club and the Angli­can Church. Other do­na­tions went to Wir­rate Fire Bri­gade, Avenel, Nagam­bie and St Joseph’s pri­mary schools, Nagam­bie on Wa­ter fes­ti­val, Crime Watch trauma bears, ju­nior net­ball, the com­mu­nity house and the com­mu­nity Christ­mas party.

Nagam­bie Fire Bri­gade cap­tain Allen Treble was pre­sented with a de­fib­ril­la­tor for bri­gade emer­gency ser­vices. He thanked the Li­ons for their sup­port in as­sist­ing with the vi­tal emer­gency equip­ment and said the bri­gade would take it with them when called out, or mem­bers of the pub­lic can con­tact a CFA mem­ber in an emer­gency sit­u­a­tion and ask to utilise the de­fib­ril­la­tor if Nagam­bie Fire Sta­tion is un­manned.

The out­go­ing com­mit­tee was re-in­stalled for 2017-18 by Sey­mour Goul­burn Li­ons Club’s Liz Johnson.

The club has a low mem­ber­ship, but works tire­lessly for their com­mu­nity and is in need of new mem­bers. If you are in­ter­ested in join­ing, phone Marg Wil­son on 0457 108 691.
