Red Cross standing strong in Gayndah
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.
LEADERS: Patricia Fuller and Pam Boughen with John Stott, Nikki Stevens, Boyd Baker, Sandra Stott, Carol Delnevo and Fay Miller.
