Lodge’s bushfire assistance

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

Since the Farmer’s Market began the Yarrawonga Lodge of St David no 103 have held a sausage sizzle with the aim of raising funds for donation to charitable causes.

Last year the Lodge dispensed $5900 to community organisations for needed equipment and to district schools to assist students who may have some extra needs.

This year with the onset of the horrendous bushfires all over the country and appeals being held by many worthy organisations for funds, it was decided that the takings from the January market be earmarked for the bushfire appeals.

It was also decided to add extra money for the lodge’s charity account.

Thus, $1917 was donated to BlazeAid Inc; the funds being directed to the Corryong Camp thereby helping people in our relatively local area.

The Lodge wish to thank all those who supported them in these endeavours; the Yarrawonga Bakery who help with bread and all members who help in any way but especially the public who purchased the snags or bacon and egg rolls and left a donation in the donation bucket.
