Lions honour Charter Member
The Lions Club of Gilbert Valley honoured their longest serving member by presenting
him with a plaque, signifying that he was a 'priviledged member'. Lion Stan Rowett was
a charter member when the club was first in 1969. He has served in many board positions,
including President,and is still willing to put his hand up when there is work to be done.
President, John Lloyd, in making the presentation at the club Christmas Dinner, paid tribute
to the outstanding Lion that he has been.
Now a permanent resident in the Riverton Hospital, along with his wife Doss, John thanked
them both for the contribution they have made to Lions Clubs International with their
dedicated work and effort.

MID NORTH COMMUNITY PASSENGER NETWORK
The MNCPN is a much needed service that provides transport to the frail, elderly and transport disadvantaged in the Mid North. This service has been established approximately 10 years and covers an area of approximately 12,829 kilometres. We currently have cars based at Clare, Burra, Balaklava, Eudunda, Hamley Bridge and coming in June /July, RIVERTON Hospitals.
We are looking for community members in the Saddleworth, Riverton and Tarlee areas to become volunteer drivers, to assist with this much needed service. .All volunteers must complete a VOLUNTEER DRIVER ACCREDITATION PROGRAMME, paid for by DETI.
If you have time to spare during the week, would love to be involved in a worthwhile area and vocation, please contact
