THE Logan Village Lions are raising the roof in celebration after securing a $5000 Commonwealth grant to replace the collapsed ceiling at their Lion’s Den.
The $11,610 project – which the group will contribute towards – will transform the group’s meeting space by putting a stop to debris falling from the broken ceiling.
Club president Eleanor Lyons welcomed the funding to replace the ceiling, which has been damaged for at least a decade.
“Getting this fixed will enable us to keep our equipment in top order for things like catering engagements and also to protect things like our Lions flags from around the world, which we currently cannot display because of the broken ceiling in our Lion’s Den,” she said.
“Having a nicely set up Den is important to us not just as a place to meet but also because it shows we’re working for the good of the club and the community.”
Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz congratulated the Logan Village Lions on their success.
“This club makes such a strong contribution to the community by raising about $20,000 every year for local causes – and the sense of belonging and community spirit the club’s 32 members get by doing this work in the community is simply invaluable,” he said.
“I’m proud to be part of a government which supports the work of the Logan Village Lions in this community and I am proud to have been part of helping them get this grant.”
