Mackay and Whitsunday Life
The invaluable Whitsunday Lions have celebrated another great period of success, helping and supporting local community groups and organisations, with a social barbeque and a game of social bowls, at the Airlie Beach Bowls Club.
With the barbeque dinner donated and cooked by Cruise Whitsundays, the evening was well enjoyed with the Whitsunday Lions extending the invitation to the Proserpine Lions and Bowen Lions.
Maurice Kite, a member of the Whitsunday Lions, explained that the social night is important to the group.
“Every now and again, we put on a social night, just to get away from the stress and everything,” he explained.
“It’s a great chance for us to unwind, and inviting the other Lions Clubs is important to us, to share and come together.
“This is also the first time Cruise Whitsundays has come on board. We are deeply appreciative of this. We usually charge each member for dinner, but it’s fantastic to be able to get together on the house.”
Robbie Miles, Food and Beverage Manager for Cruise Whitsundays was behind the barbeque on the night.
"We believe that it is important to support local community groups because they play a vital role in keeping our communities thriving. They provide important services and programs that benefit everyone, it was a privilege for Cruise Whitsundays to host the Whitsunday Lions Club.”
