New board for Proser­pine Lions Club

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

ADO­NA­TION of $12,000 to the Proser­pine State Emer­gency Ser­vice (SES) and pre­par­ing lunch for 35 vis­it­ing rugby league teams were among the many high­lights of the Proser­pine Lions Club’s last 12 months.

David Hin­schen is the new pres­i­dent. He was in­ducted at the club’s re­cent an­nual change-over which at­tracted more than 50 peo­ple at the Proser­pine Lions Club an­nual changeover din­ner at the Proser­pine ExSer­vices Club last month.

Mr Hin­schen has been a mem­ber of the club for eight years and this is the sec­ond time he has been in­ducted as pres­i­dent.

Ho­race Low­bridge is the new se- cre­tary and for­mer Lions Dis­trict Gover­nor Doug Win­ter­flood will be the trea­surer for the next 12 months.

Out­go­ing pres­i­dent Damien Mott said the event was a great suc­cess.

He pre­sented awards to mem­bers Mario Faletti, David Hin­schen and Ho­race Low­bridge for their out­stand­ing work and sup­port through­out the year.

Mr Hin­schen said his main fo­cus as the new pres­i­dent would be to con­tinue the ex­cep­tional work done by the club while ac­tively en­cour­ag­ing new, younger mem­bers to the club.

He said some of the club’s great­est achieve­ments over the past year in­cluded the do­na­tion to the SES to- wards a new res­cue boat, the An­zac Day gun­fire break­fast and the Paul Bow­man Shield fundraiser where the club sup­plied food and drinks to the vis­it­ing teams from across North Queens­land.

The Proser­pine Li­on­ess Club also held their an­nual changeover in con­junc­tion with the event, with out­go­ing pres­i­dent Colleen Mal­colm wel­com­ing new pres­i­dent Sue Dair, sec­re­tary Kath Hud­son and trea­surer Ar­lene Robert­son into their new po­si­tions.

Ms Mal­colm also pre­sented the 2013 pres­i­dent’s award to Ar­lene Robert­son for her valu­able con­tri­bu­tions to the club over the past 12 months.
