Quota International of Narooma marked its 32nd year with high tea at Club Narooma on Saturday.
Clr Phil Constable brought greetings from Liz Innes, mayor of Eurobodalla Shire, and echoed her sentiments about the good work the club undertakes in the community.
Past District Governor Barb McCabe installed the new committee. Chris Ryder returns as president, and Sue Fahey as vice president. Carol Hodges has accepted secretary duties for another term while Susan Pryke and Carol Mead take on new roles as treasurer and assistant secretary, respectively. Bronwyn Roll, Sally Davey, Sandra Haynes and Maureen Young will serve on the board.
Clr Lindsay Brown welcomed the new board and highlighted some of the projects Quota undertakes in cooperation with the Shire Council.
President Chris Ryder thanked Club Narooma for their support: “For 52 weeks of the year our members assist in the Charity Meat Raffle each Sunday at Club Narooma. This has enabled us to donate to worthwhile causes to the tune of just under $33,000 this last year.”
In addition to the donations made previously to local schools, hearing and speech projects, community organisations and emergency relief efforts, Quota presented cheques on the day to Monty’s Place, Moruya District Hospital Auxiliary, Narooma Men’s Shed, Narooma Rural Fire Service, Dalmeny/Kianga Rural Fire Service and Tuross Head Rural Fire Service.
