Two new Li­ons join Jer­ilderie’s den

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Jer­ilderie Li­ons Club held a mixed din­ner at the Colony Inn Ho­tel on Wed­nes­day last week.

Among the 25 peo­ple in at­ten­dance were Dis­trict Gov­er­nor of Li­ons Steven Kazen­wadel and his wife Alison from Wan­garatta and Zone 3 Chair­man Inara Fox and her hus­band Ian from Ber­ri­gan Li­ons.

There were also four rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Fin­ley Li­ons Club, join­ing lo­cal Li­ons and their wives and wel­comed by Jer­ilderie Club pres­i­dent Paul Ryan.

Prior to ad­dress­ing the gath­er­ing, Steven in­ducted two new mem­bers — Colin Pow­ell and An­drew Buck­ing­ham.

Jer­ilderie Li­ons sec­re­tary Richard Wright was also pre­sented with a 10-year Cer­tifi­cate of Ser­vice.

In his pre­sen­ta­tion, Steve out­lined the work be­ing done by Li­ons on the lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional scene, and the im­por­tance of us­ing the lat­est tech­nol­ogy to dis­sem­i­nate in­for­ma­tion and at­tract younger mem­bers.

His wife Alison gave an in­ter­est­ing pre­sen­ta­tion on the Li­ons In­ter­na­tional Re­cy­cle for Sight project.

This project or­gan­ises the col­lec­tion of used spec­ta­cles and dis­trib­utes them world wide through Li­ons Clubs, Church mis­sions and hu­man­i­tar­ian groups, to peo­ple with vi­sion im­pair­ment.

The Jer­ilderie club has been given col­lec­tion boxes which will be placed in var­i­ous venues around town.

If you have old glasses tak­ing up space in your draw­ers or cup­boards here is your chance to find a good use for them.

It is sug­gested that you wrap them in bub­ble wrap rather than put them in their old cases, which are too bulky for postage.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Sunu and Manu Joseph fol­low­ing the re­cent birth of their son, Ger­ard. All are well. Sunu’s par­ents are vis­it­ing Jer­ilderie and get­ting to know their new grand­son.

Lo­cal peo­ple were sorry to learn of the re­cent death in Yass of for­mer Jer­ilderie West­pac Bank man­ager, Clive Lang­field.

Sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to his wife Yvonne, and the wider fam­ily.

Clive’s fu­neral was in Bi­na­long Wed­nes­day.


Tidy Towns will be hav­ing a work­ing bee at The Wil­lows tomorrow start­ing at 5pm.

It is hoped there will be a good roll up to tidy up the gar­dens, as many hands make light work.

Both pri­mary schools joined in the wreath lay­ing cer­e­mony at the Ceno­taph on Re­mem­brance Day, which was well at­tended by those wish­ing to mark the day of re­spect.

Chil­dren from St Joseph’s Jer­ilderie will take part in the South West Dean­ery spe­cial Michael Connell Cricket Day in Fin­ley this Fri­day.

The day is in mem­ory of Michael, who was the for­mer Prin­ci­pal of St Columba’s Ber­ri­gan, who died sud­denly dur­ing the last school hol­i­days.

He loved his cricket.

Years 4/5/6 at St Joseph’s is preparing for the an­nual Pen­guin’s Pub­lic Speak­ing com­pe­ti­tion which will be held on Novem­ber 30.

The theme is, ‘Should Tourists be Al­lowed in Antarc­tica?’.

The Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary will hold its last meet­ing for the year on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 26 at 2pm in the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre meet­ing room. Subs are now due. Mem­bers are re­minded that there will be a pre-Christ­mas luncheon at the Sports Club restau­rant on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 15.
