Welcome To The Edition For November 2022
Hello once again readers of the Yarrabilba and Logan Village Bulletin and as I commence writing this on a wet and chilly Friday 21st October it is only 62 days to Christmas, how this year has flown and what a year we all have had, let’s hope Santa does not have any airport delays at the North Pole.
CLUB EVENTS IN PREVIOUS MONTH:
Saturday 1 October – Biggest BBQ Event at Bunnings Bethania, very busy day the afternoon was a bit wet (I was on duty, quack quack) but we had lots of customers who appreciated a nice hot Sausage Sizzle, all money raised went towards Lions Australia Biggest BBQ fund raiser.
Tuesday 4 October – At our Lions Dinner Meeting, our guest speaker was Nick Steiner ounder and CEO from the Mini Farms Project, I mentioned it in last month’s article. It was a very interesting talk the project is a lot bigger than we thought and has inspired the club to become more involved, we presented Nick with a cheque for $1000 for the construction of new produce beds at Loganlea State School
Saturday 8 October – Sausage Sizzle at Coles Yarrabilba a good day we sold lots of snags and raffle tickets and met some interesting locals.
Saturday 15 October – President Phil and Treasurer Tim were at Bunnings Bethania selling Raffle tickets and cakes, they sold over 150 raffle tickets and 20 cakes a very good day.
Saturday 22 October – Sausage Sizzle at Coles Yarrabilba and Woollies at Logan Village, slow start at both sites but picked up and we had good sales of snags and raffles.
Note: with the sausage sizzles held at Bunnings, Woollies and Coles for the Lions Biggest BBQ fundraiser, we were able to donate $2000 to this worthy cause.
Sunday 23 October – Unfortunately the Woodstock concert event was cancelled due to the forecast rain event.
Wednesday 26 October – LCC Seniors month BBQ event at Tygum Park Waterford, all food and drink funded by the LCC, lots of information for seniors and people to talk to for advice and information. The day was enjoyed by all who attended, well done the Lions who assisted.

Lismore Lions Club 75th Anniversary
A celebration dinner was held at Invercauld House, Goonellabah on 1st October to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the first Lions Club in Australia formed in Lismore in 1947 by Bill Tresize.
The dinner and other events was attended by Lions from across Australia, our District Governor DG Ian Bruning and his wife Therese attended along with Lions from many clubs within our District 201Q1. Local MP Janelle Saffin and Lismore mayor Cr Steve King attended the dinner and both spoke on the needs of Lismore following the floods and pledged help, as have Lions Australia.
It was a great event and showed the history of the Lismore club from its founding in 1947 up till the present day DG Ian advised all who attended were made most welcome and enjoyed the events that were organised, he says that the 100 year celebration in 2047 will be a milestone for Lions Australia.
