The Bega Valley Parkinson Support Group had a wonderful outing for their Xmas party held in the Dolphin room at Club Sapphire. 28 members of the group really enjoyed themselves by the amount of smiles around the room. Two new members were introduced by the President and they were welcomed by the other members. The next meeting will be held on February 6.
The Lions Club of Pambula-Merimbula ran a sausage sizzle outside Woolworths, Merimbula on Saturday, December 13 to raise money for Lions Projects. But Lions is much more than just a sausage sizzle, also on sale were 1.5kg Lions Christmas Cakes, which are still for sale in many local businesses.
Tickets in the giant Christmas raffle were offered and the prize of a garden trolley kindly donated by Mitre 10 is packed full with Christmas goodies, food and toys. The raffle will be drawn at Carols by Candlelight at Magic Mountain on Friday.
