Awards presented at Lions changeover dinner

Woy Woy Peninsula Lions Club celebrated its 45th annual Changeover Dinner last Monday, July 17, at the Ettalong Diggers Club .

The dinner formally marked the transition of outgoing president Mr Greg Head to incoming president Mr Rob Osmond.

The night featured major awards to current club members.

Mr Tony Griffiths received the Lions Australia James D Richardson Award for his commitment to the club.

Lions Australia Community Awards were presented to Mr Tony Denham, Ms Faye Austin and the late Mr Ken Austin for their service to events held by our club for the local community.

The awards were presented by Lion Mr Tony Seitam, special guest for the night along with his wife Norma.

Mr Head also presented certificates of appreciation and letters confirming donations from the club which totalled over $3500 on the night.

These were accepted by Umina Surf Life Saving Club sponsorship co-ordinator Mr Mike Begg, Umina Beach CWA president Ms Lin Griffiths, Umina Beach Men's Shed secretary Mr Vic Brown, Woy Woy Neighbourhood Centre president Mr Ian Taylor President and by Shoebox Revolution.

Mr Head said the club also thanked Able Futures chief executive Ms Sharon Lee and Ettalong Diggers Club chief executive Mr Colin Murphy their ongoing support of the club.

"The night culminated in the presentation of Lions Australia Community Awards to Mr Stephen McPhee of McPhee Pharmacy Ettalong and Ms Vicki Duffy Lance Clarke Amcal Chemist Woy Woy.

"These awards were presented by our cake chairman Mr Ian Taylor for their outstanding sales of our Lions Christmas Cakes and Puddings year after year, which helps our club raise funds that we can donation back to our community."

"It was a great evening," said Mr Head who, after two years as president, now takes on the role of club secretary.
