Lismore Quota turns 70 with lunch, guests
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.
