Com­mu­nity ben­e­fits from Apex­i­ans

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

Any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing or find­ing out more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Greg Dick­ins on 0419 485 253.
