Community benefits from Apexians
There’s a great feeling that comes with being a member of a service club, Corowa Apex Club President Graeme Leslie says.
Apart from having a great time catching up with fellow members, the club raises money for organisations and people in need.
Graeme, who is enjoying his 18th year with the club, is looking for community-minded residents to join its fold.
“We are a community service club for anyone aged 18 to 45,” he said.
“It’s a great chance to be a part of the community and help raise funds for organisations and people in need.
“We recently raised funds for a senior member of our club whose nephew was ill.”
The club’s biggest money earner is the min- iature steam train that takes children and adults for rides around Bangerang Park.
The train operates during the Rotary Club’s monthly market and can also be hired, along with the club’s jumping caste, for Christmas parties and other gatherings at the park.
The club was a major sponsor for last weekend’s Fishing for the Future competition.
Membership currently stands at five, which includes one life member and two who are classed as senior active members, meaning they are retired from official duties.
The club meets every second Wednesday night from 7pm at the Apex Shed in Bow Street.
