New board for Proserpine Lions Club
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.
