Red Cross stand­ing strong in Gayn­dah

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

ONE hun­dred years is a very long time for an or­gan­i­sa­tion to be run­ning, how­ever the Aus­tralian Red Cross in Gayn­dah has passed this mile­stone and con­tin­ues to run.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion hosted their an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Thurs­day, Au­gust 9, in or­der to make the new com­mit­tee of­fi­cial.

The Red Cross hosts raf­fles and money boards through­out the year in or­der to raise money.

Money raised by the Red Cross goes to the break­fast club, to the Red Cross head­quar­ters and some goes back into the or­gan­i­sa­tion at Gayn­dah.

This year’s com­mit­tee for the Red Cross was de­clared by Boyd Baker and con­sists of John Stott as pres­i­dent, Shaleen Pry­goda as vice pres­i­dent, San­dra Stott as sec­re­tary and Fay Miller as trea­surer.

Pres­i­dent Mr Stott has been a mem­ber of Red Cross for over 20 years.

There are cur­rently 16 mem­bers of the Red Cross, how­ever the or­gan­i­sa­tion has put the call out for more.

“We are seek­ing new mem­bers,” Mr Stott said.

If you wish to join the Red Cross in Gayn­dah, you can do so by con­tact­ing the sec­re­tary or any mem­bers of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.
