WESTERN QLD DROUGHT.
LIONS -YOU WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE- Thankyou.
The drought appears to start 100ks west of Emerald, although pockets of drought exist closer in.
Your funds, $5424.55 will impact on people out west, on families on stations or farms. Income for these people has diminished due to lack of ability to sell cattle, cattle too weak to be transported or having to shoot cattle. Qld should not forget that one third of Qlds GDP comes from cattle!
My wife and I can assure you that your support and assistance from the funds you have raised plus the fact that funds will be spent in local towns will help in ensuring families stay together, reduce impact of depression and help in providing and bringing a smile to families. The farmers understand and appreciate that others are thinking of them.
The fact that funds are spent in each town, supporting local business does not go unnoticed.
Your substantial efforts in raising funds, selling sausages, holding raffles is most timely as we move towards Christmas and the coming heat of summer.
From the bottom of my heart I know (as my wife and I experienced at Jericho and Alpha) that your Club members will and have made a difference.
See you at the Convention.
