The Lions Club of Nagambie and District held its 2017 changeover dinner on Friday.
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren and Cr Deb Swan congratulated the club on their community efforts.
Club president Margaret Wilson handed out cheques to community representatives from Nagambie HealthCare activities group, the tennis club, cemetery trust, the Bailieston, Wahring and Nagambie Fire Brigades, Nagambie Golf Club, Nagambie Bowling Club and the Anglican Church. Other donations went to Wirrate Fire Brigade, Avenel, Nagambie and St Joseph’s primary schools, Nagambie on Water festival, Crime Watch trauma bears, junior netball, the community house and the community Christmas party.
Nagambie Fire Brigade captain Allen Treble was presented with a defibrillator for brigade emergency services. He thanked the Lions for their support in assisting with the vital emergency equipment and said the brigade would take it with them when called out, or members of the public can contact a CFA member in an emergency situation and ask to utilise the defibrillator if Nagambie Fire Station is unmanned.
The outgoing committee was re-installed for 2017-18 by Seymour Goulburn Lions Club’s Liz Johnson.
The club has a low membership, but works tirelessly for their community and is in need of new members. If you are interested in joining, phone Marg Wilson on 0457108691.
