Lismore Echo

Congratulations to the Lismore Committee for organising a wonderful Lions District Convention on the weekend. Over 350 people converged on Lismore to hear inspirational speakers, discuss Lions projects and have fellowship. I was honoured to open the Convention and also present John Shirley from Kyogle with a Premier’s Community Service Award for his outstanding commitment to Lions in the area.

An urgent reminder that the University Centre for Rural Health After the Flood survey closes on Monday 6 November.

This Community Resilence Project is calling on ALL residents of the Northern Rivers to complete the survey to help support our ongoing recovery & future responses to disasters.

Everyone in this region was affected in some way by the flood so your thoughts count.
