Leos sup­port Legacy

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Mem­bers of Drouin Se­condary Col­lege’s Leos Club were out and about in the town’s shop­ping cen­tre last week lend­ing sup­port to the an­nual Legacy Week badges sales.

It was the third year the club has as­sisted Cen­tral Gipp­s­land Legacy’s fund-rais­ing.

As well as badges that ranged in price from $2 to $20 they sold wrist bands, pens and soft toy bears dressed in uni­forms of a num­ber of branches of the armed ser­vices.

Le­ga­tee Graeme Watts of Drouin said the sup­port of the club was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated dur­ing the an­nual ap­peal that raises funds for fam­i­lies of in­ca­pac­i­tated and de­ceased veter­ans.

He said that money raised lo­cally was spent lo­cally and that the Cen­tral Gipp­s­land branch as­sisted more than 200 peo­ple in­clud­ing help­ing wi­d­ows and chil­dren of veter­ans with their ed­u­ca­tion and per­sonal de­vel­op­ment.

Leos clubs com­prised of young peo­ple and are af­fil­i­ates of Lions In­ter­na­tional clubs.

The Drouin se­condary col­lege club was formed about five years ago and con­ducts sev­eral com­mu­nity ser­vice pro­grams each year.

Ready to hit the streets of Drouin to sell badges and other items to raise funds for Legacy last week were Drouin se­condary col­lege Leos Club mem­bers, from left, Gemma Burke, Ruby Kelly, Xavier Swet­man, Halle Bray­bon, Chloe Kirk­man and Cait­lyn War­riner.
