Youths eager to help community

The Lions Club of Collie celebrated an exciting event last week with the official formation night of the Collie Leos club held this week.

Leo clubs are a sponsored affiliation of Lions Clubs International that encourages young men and women to serve others in their community and around the world.

A group of proactive youths have nominated to be part of the inaugural Collie Leos club. Elections were held for the four office-bearer positions, with Blayne Emmett voted the inaugural president, Dana Coombes as vice president, Connor Silvester as secretary and Shae Digney as treasurer.

The Collie Leos have already visited the Waroona Leos and held several fundraisers, including sausage sizzles and a bake sale and are busy planning future events.
