The Northern Star - - NEWS -

LIS­MORE Quota is host­ing a spe­cial lun­cheon next Satur­day to cel­e­brate it’s 70th an­niver­sary.

Pres­i­dent Dawn Sten said the event was set to host some spe­cial guests and lucky door prizes in the hope to raise aware­ness about the lo­cal com­mu­nity group.

“We’re hav­ing a lun­cheon to cel­e­brate and we are just try­ing to get as much sup­port for that as we can,” Ms Sten said.

“We’ve got a guest speaker com­ing and Thomas Ge­orge and a few other dig­ni­taries that will be at­tend­ing.

“We want to in­vite peo­ple we have sup­ported over the years with do­na­tions to con­tin­u­ally raise aware­ness.

“Even though it has been up and run­ning (in Lis­more) for 70 years, still a lot of peo­ple out there say­ing what is Quota?”

Quota was a ser­vice club pri­mar­ily set up for and by women, which orig­i­nated in the United States in 1919.

“It is pretty much world­wide now, with quite a num­ber of clubs in Aus­tralia,” Ms Sten said.

The lunch will be at Lis­more Heights Bowl­ing Club, High Street Lis­more, on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 21 from 11:30am. Cost is $25.
