Rotary and Lions share new storage facility

Aug 29, 2011 by

The Rotary Club of Bowral-Mittagong and the Bowral Lions Club have united to build a new storage shed. Their aim was to significantly increase the storage area and efficiency of the two service clubs involved. The new shed will enable the clubs to better store equipment, such as barbeque trailers and tools, with which the members serve the community through their many activities.

Secretary of the Ro

tary Club of Bowral-Mittagong, Trevor Fair, said the wider community has benefitted “as two of the main service clubs in the Wingecarribee, Rotary and Lions, will be able to provide more efficient and effective service to the community, as well as ensuring the equipment used on service projects is maintained in a serviceable and cleanly manner.  These efficiencies will flow onto the wider community in numerous ways.”

The service clubs used a grant of $16,695 from the Trust along with $8,693 funds raised from their 'mega' auction, and other donations to complete the project. Trust Chairman Paul Stephenson, pictured above, was on hand at the official opening to congratulate the clubs on their efforts.
