LIONS MINI LOTTO: Although the Lions Mini Lotto of $10,000 was won on August 10 by a happy Maureen Gault, the new jackpot also stands at $10,000 and members of the community are advised that all numbers 1-20 are now included. Maureen has been purchasing tickets in Mini Lotto since its inception and has won a few five number prizes. She wishes to thank the Club for thework they do in the community and said she will continue to buy tickets. Maureen will use her win to do some home improvements.

If you have not tried your luck in this promotion just look for a bright yellow box in Reid’s Hardware, Chris’ Bakery, Grenfell Meat Barn, Caltex, Hotels, Bowling Club and the Tin Cupboard. Cost is $1 per game or $2 for the full ticket. All you have to do is to pick 6 numbers from 1 to 20 and get someone from the establishment to sign your ticket before placing it in the box. The draw is held at 6.30pm in each of the participating licensed venues in rotation every Thursday. You do not have to leave it until that day to enter as tickets are on top of each box and can be put in any day. As a courtesy, please when filling in your numbers write the selling agent on the ticket. That way we know where to leave your prizes if you are lucky enough to draw five or even six numbers. The numbers are electronically drawn leach week by members of the public and results are published in Wednesday’s Grenfell Record Classifieds.

Captain AAC John Brown received the cheque on behalf of the Cadets from Lions Incoming President Christopher Moran. The money presented was for the purchase of two way radios and other equipment required by the platoon. Captain Brown thanked the Lions Club for their most generous support
