Clubs offer mutual help
IN a gesture of mutual admiration, Laidley RSL Sub-branch president Mike Nowlan has donated funds to the local Lions Club.
Mr Nowlan said the money was a means of thanking and acknowledging the Lions continuing support for the sub-branch each Anzac Day.
“Our members appreciate the way the Lions provide the ‘gunfire' breakfast following the annual Dawn Service,” he said.
Accepting the donation, Laidley Lions Club lion tamer and function chairperson Olive Estella said her members had been preparing the Anzac Day breakfasts for “many years”.
“That is our gift to the RSL,” she said.
“My late husband Ray and my brother Douglas were both returned men, and this is our way of supporting the work the RSL does within our community.”
Mrs Estella, a member of Lions for 18 years, said all the money would go to the Cancer Council's research program.
