Armidale Dumaresq Omega Leo
The Armidale Dumaresq Leos Club has had another wonderful year servicing the local community.
Report from the outgoing President 2015-16: Ms Emma Devos-McLean:
Our main goal this year was fundraising. At the beginning of our term last year we raised money for lifeline for the Christmas period through one of our pie drives. Then at the beginning of this year we had a goal to raise $160 for Youth in-search as this was the cost of sending one young person to their camp. We managed to exceed this greatly and ended up raising $784.67! This was done through many different fundraisers of varying success including our Bi-annual pie drives which have been doing incredibly thanks to head of pie drive Holly. We also held a college volleyball competition, jelly bean guessing competition, Ice-cream sale, op-shop themed pub night, and ran the gate at a rugby day.
We represented Leos from around the world at the Annual Convention in Moree last year - Jess Lloyd, Sarah Thomas and Myself had a fabulous time.
As well as this we had afternoon tea with the DG of Lions at the Royal Hotel.
We attended the Lifesaver day, Well-fair and the youth opportunities expo all at UNE.
And as usual we enjoyed flipping pancakes alongside our sponsor Lions Club, Dumaresq Lions, at The Armidale Autumn Festival Pancake Breakfast and marching alongside the Dumaresq Lions with the Leos banner, Sophie, Naomi and Angus really enjoyed themselves.
Absolutely everyone in this club does an amazing job and are always eager to put their hand up for jobs. Thank you all for being so awesome and good luck to the incoming team we wish you all the best!
