OVER $2,000.00 WAS DONATED TO THE COMMUNITY BY THE CLUB
The South Toowoomba Apex Club had their 50th Annual Change Over Dinner on 9th of July at Gips Restaurant in Toowoomba. The Club celebrated 50 years of service to the community with a winter wonderland themed ball. As part of the festivities of the night outgoing President Georgia Soutar made a presentation to the RSPCA donating $500 for new equipment and $500 to Rosie’s Friends of the Street for a portable fridge and freezer. Annette Skaines from Rosie’s Friends of the Street was Guest Speaker for the evening and thanked the club for getting involved and running a community outreach BBQ once a month with Rosie’s.
At the event the Club sold raffle tickets, with all of the prizes donated by local businesses. The Club was able to raise over $1,000.00 on the night which they will use to buy and donate non-perishable supplies to the Rockville State School Breakfast Club. Councilor Megan, O’Hara Sullivan attended the event and Former Attorney General Kerry Shine was also in attendance. The club was lucky enough to have some of their Past Members and Life Members present on the evening as there was a surprise presentation ceremony for Life Membership to Steve Woods, who upon his recent retirement from the Club had been an active member for 19 years. Incoming President Sarah-Jane MacDonald said “I look forward to the next 12 months of Apex continuing to support our local community.”
Over the last 50 years the South Toowoomba Apex Club has completed over 50,000.00 hours of community service to the Toowoomba Community through various service projects.
