Is 50 good enough?



RON Goodenough was recognised this month for more than 50 years of continuous service through the Coffs Harbour Lions Club.

Mr Goodenough has been director, president, chairman of Welcoming, Welfare and Barbecue committees; has performed the tasks of Lion Tamer for many years and is currently involved with the Lion Mints, Lions jumping castle and car boot sales.

District governor Peter Veryard, region chairman George Piddle zone chairman Kevin Penfold, Mr Goodenough's wife Molly and five of his grandchildren watched his club present the long-serving Lion with a commemorative chevron and service flash.

But Ron Goodenough is not alone in clocking up a half-century of service to the Lions. He shares that distinction with Austy Harrison, who has now clocked up 52 years and Ron Elvy, who has served for 50 years with Lions Club in Sydney and in Coffs Harbour.

"It is through such efforts Coffs Harbour Lions is able to donate over $10,000 each year to local charities and worthwhile causes," President John Skinner said.

The Coffs Harbour Lions Club is looking for new members interested in making a big difference to their local community while having fun with a great bunch of people.

Contact John at 6652 2919 or email skinnys@bigponmd.net.au to find out about joining or book a place at the monthly car boot sale.
