Work to start on park bar­be­cue fa­cil­ity

Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

THIS WEEK, not only marks the end of the fi­nan­cial year busi­ness-wise but also our Lions year. Our an­nual in­stal­la­tion of of­fice bear­ers and changeover din­ner takes place on Satur­day night at the RSL Memo­rial Club.

Pres­i­dent Ivan Er­pel will hand the reins to Pres­i­dent Elect Bruce We­drat and a new Lions year will be­gin.

Next week, we will bring you high­lights of Satur­day night’s pro­ceed­ings.

Next month, work should start on the con­struc­tion of a bar­be­cue fa­cil­ity in Lions Park.

The new fa­cil­ity has been many months in the plan­ning stage but fi­nally ap­provals are in place and the nec­es­sary equip­ment/ com­po­nents have been or­dered.

The new fa­cil­ity will also be (we be­lieve) the only one of its kind in the Western Downs re­gion be­ing con­structed to en­able mem­bers of our com­mu­nity with a dis­abil­ity to use it.

We, as a Lions Club, are ex­tremely grate­ful to QGC for their gen­er­ous grant which will cover most of the cost of this fa­cil­ity. Thank you QGC. Un­til next week, take care, stay safe, and if you are trav­el­ling in the school hol­i­days, have a safe jour­ney.
