Another successful Lions year

THE season of goodwill is upon us, with everyone thinking of family, presents, food, and all sorts of things that happen at no other time of the year.

It's exciting and tiring at the same time, with some wishing it was all over already.

There's too much fun to be had to think that way; time for the inner child to come forward and enjoy the season.

In November, 10-year-old Shelby Green, daughter of Lion Adrian and Tina, raised an incredible $929.60 for the Lions Children's Cancer Research Foundation by selling hot chocolate drinks with marshmallows at her school.

Wonderful effort Shelby.

Lions members enjoyed a car rally that culminated in their Christmas party at Girraween National Park.

Except for the heat and the odd fly (let alone the even ones), members had a terrific time with many saying the drive took them through places they had not visited for some time or not seen before.

Thanks to Doug Rigden and Kurt Empen for organising the day, with added thanks to Wayne Tait and his team for cooking a wonderful lunch.

We had another successful Santa's Sack Raffle with all three prizes going to local people.

The club also had a successful sausage sizzle at the Carols in the Park and will again be involved with the Chamber of Commerce late shopping night.
