What’s On In The Lions Den For November
Hello again readers of the Logan Village and Yarrabilba Bulletin it’s the
November issue and only 8 weeks to Christmas, start that Christmas shopping early as the retailers are forecasting shortages on many
items this year, I think Gift vouchers are looking a good way to go.
October has turned out to have been a quiet month for us Lions , we
had the Arms/Memorabilia fair at Belmont cancelled for the 16 &
17th and also the LCC” Love Logan” event at Kingston Raceway on
the 18th cancelled.
Let’s hope the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on Sunday 31st goes ahead
at Bethania, even without a Free Covid jab in isle 5. We are optimistic
that things will pick up and we will be back to some normality.
The Catering we did for the Variety Bash fundraiser on Sunday 10th at
the Wellers Hill Bowls Club was a great success, it was a great family
day and we sold lots of food and raffle tickets, a big thank you the firms
who donated meat and fruit trays to help us. The Barefoot Bowls held
on Sundays at the club is a great source of entertainment for all ages,
I would recommend investigating it further.
The club had some sad news with the passing of Club member Tony Meade
who passed away on the 4th of October, please see our Vale for Tony.
