Adding to the existing local campaigns such as Lions Clubs BBqs, Buy a Bale, a Parma for a Farmer are new intitiatives by The Tomakin Club, Club Catalin and even Eurobodalla Council. The Tomakin Club has jumped at the opportunity to be one of the selected venues supporting this campaign and I’m hoping you can help us get word out locally. The campaign pledges 50cents from every schooner of Iron Jack and $1 from every Carton purchased will go to Rural Aid. Shane Cairney of the Tomakin Club told The Beagle "We are already active with the Parma for a Farmer campaign supporting Rural Aids Buy a Bale push and are always willing to accept donations to the cause at club reception too. Our own goal is to raise $9500 which will pay for a semi trailer load of hay delivered up to 900km via buy-a-bale to where it is needed the most. By jumping on the Lion Nathan fundraiser we are also helping achieve their goal of donating $1million to Rural Aid." Club Catalina has initiated Drought Muster to help local rural families and communities who are suffering in the drought. You can participate by BUYING A BALE OF HAY FOR JUST $20 at the Main bar, Pro Shop or Reception to feed cattle. Last Tuesday saw the Mayor, Councillor Innes move a motion that Eurobodalla Council: 1. accept, in principle , the concept of a Shire friendship arrangement with Cobar Shire. and support the facilitation of a drought relief working group within Eurobodalla. The gesture is will see the offering of “shire friendship” and a "working group" created. A member of the gallery, following the announcement of the Mayor's Minute said "Such friendship and knowing there is a working group talking about the drought will no doubt come as a great relief to the Cobar community".
