Funds raised will be spent on pro­jects un­der­taken by Fin­ley Ro­tary, in­clud­ing do­na­tions to­wards all three Fin­ley schools, the Ti­mor-Leste Im­mer­sion Pro­gram, ex­er­cise equip­ment around the lake and im­prov­ing the walk­ing track around the lake.

‘‘We’re so happy with the lo­cal peo­ple for their sup­port,’’ Mrs Jewell said.

‘‘Num­bers were down slightly but we’re still pleased to have raised a sub­stan­tial amount.

‘‘Ro­tary did not field a side this year, but we’re hop­ing to put to­gether a side for next year as some Ro­tar­i­ans are bowlers.’’

Win­ning the bowls day was the De­niliquin RSL side.

Mrs Jewell thanked all vol­un­teers, sponsors, sup­port­ers and the Fin­ley Bowl­ing Club.
