Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

THIS week our mem­bers will be start­ing a busy two-week pe­riod col­lect­ing and pre­par­ing items for sale at our an­nual Lions Char­ity Auc­tion, which will be held on Satur­day, April 21 from 9am on­wards.

We are pleased to be able to re­port there are al­ready many in­ter­est­ing items on of­fer in­clud­ing fur­ni­ture; large, new cup­boards with draw­ers and hang­ing space and many boxes of knick-knacks, toys, drink­ing glasses, etc.

We also have two ex­er­cise walk­ing ma­chines on of­fer, plus col­lecta­bles, i.e. old tractor and ma­chin­ery wheels and some an­tique fur­ni­ture.

There will be some­thing for ev­ery­one

We will itemise more of the items next week. Please give Lion Bruce a call on 0429 365 322 if you have any ex­cess items you wish to con­tribute.

The Cac­to­blastis Mon­u­ment project west of town con­tin­ues to re­ceive lo­cal vis­i­tors and tourists. To make the area even more invit­ing, the new own­ers of the prop­erty, Lions Steven and Ur­sula Keat­ing are set to in­stall a pipe­line from Charleys Creek at the back of the prop­erty, which will pump wa­ter to the mon­u­ment site.

Very soon we hope to have at­trac­tive lawns to wel­come our vis­i­tors.

Well done to our Ma­sonic friends in do­nat­ing much needed funds to our Meals on Wheels ser­vice here in town.

Chin­chilla Lions Club has a long his­tory of sup­port­ing Meals on Wheels hav­ing con­structed the orig­i­nal Meals on Wheels kitchen build­ing from pro­ceeds of, what was then our an­nual Bar­ley Crop, grown on the un­used por­tion of the Chin­chilla Aero­drome.

‘Til next week, take care, stay safe and re­mem­ber if you would like to find out what Lions do in the com­mu­nity, call Lind­say on 0427 656 201 and have a cof­fee and a chat or join us for din­ner.
