Book worm’s paradise
President Margaret Martin of Te Aroha Mountain Lions Club welcomed the 70 members and partners from Te Aroha Rotary and the town’s two Lions Clubs to the annual Combined Services Dinner last Wednesday.
This annual dinner is a chance for members of these busy service clubs to celebrate the work they do for their community in a friendly social setting.
In giving the Rotary report, president Corolyn Stephenson, spoke of the challenges of getting new members for all service clubs and mooted the idea of working together on projects.
This has been done before to positive effect with a special electric bed for Te Aroha Hospital plus a shower bed.
