Ro­tary’s cash splash for pool

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Fin­ley Ro­tary Club has thrown its sup­port be­hind a fel­low lo­cal com­mu­nity group.

Ro­tary do­nated $1000 to the Fin­ley Pool Com­mit­tee to help pay for up­grades to the bar­be­cue area.

Fin­ley Ro­tary pres­i­dent Deb­bie Jewell said as the pool is used by many lo­cal fam­i­lies it was im­por­tant to help sup­port a hard work­ing com­mit­tee.

‘‘The com­mit­tee has been do­ing some im­prove­ments to help en­cour­age fam­i­lies to come down for a bar­be­cue or a swim,’’ she said.

‘‘We thought we should chip in some money for it, as the bar­be­cue area is great for the fam­i­lies who fre­quently use the pool over sum­mer.

‘‘Many Ro­tary mem­bers use the pool, as do many of our chil­dren and grand­chil­dren.

‘‘The pool com­mit­tee works hard to main­tain such as great fa­cil­ity in Fin­ley.’’

Early in De­cem­ber Fin­ley Ro­tary, in a com­bined ef­fort with the Fin­ley Foot­ball and Net­ball Club, do­nated $1150 to district gov­er­nor Mal­colm Kerr and his wife Jill’s Buy a Bale and ru­ral aid project.

The Fin­ley Ro­tary Club’s big­gest fundraiser is com­ing up on Wed­nes­day, March 27 with its tra­di­tional bowls day at the Fin­ley Bowl­ing Club.
