The Young community always puts its best foot forward when the Lions Club of Young puts on an event to raise money to help those in need, according to Lion Marie Tame from the Quilt Show Committee.

“From volunteers, friends and members who assisted in the installation of the Quilt Show, to our sponsors, the stall holders - always ready to assist - and the quilters and volunteers who came to look after the quilts during the weekend, the generosity of these people knew no bounds,” Ms Tame said.

“Over 300 people visited the show over the weekend of 28 and 29 May 2022, gazing with awe and wonder at the display of beautiful quilts on show. They came from far and wide to visit, from Bundanoon, Griffith, Cootamundra, Temora, Bathurst, Canberra and Orange. Our District Governor, Lion Ron Parry and his wife, Lion Barbara, worked with the team over the weekend.”

Other Lions past and a future District Governor also visited the show. Member for Cootamundra, the Hon Steph Cooke MP attended on Saturday afternoon as did Mayor Margaret Roles and Deputy Mayor, Alison Foreman.
