The Lachlan Valley Caravan Club, formed in 2003 as the Forbes Country Club Caravanners, is well known locally for having plenty of fun on its monthly rallies. So far this year its rallies have led members to Tumbarumba, Oberon, Manilla, Kiacatoo (west of Condobolin for the club’s annual bush rally), Young and Victoria’s Gippsland region for the club’s annual three-week roving rally. The next event is a rally to Bourke from July 20-27, with members spending two nights at the Nyngan Riverside Caravan Park and four at Kidman’s Camp in North Bourke. For further
information and plenty of photos of the members letting their hair down or just having fun in the case of the follicly challenged, visit www.lachlanvalleycaravanclub.org.au.
The Forbes and District Lions Club will officially welcome its new President, Peter Bright, at its annual changeover dinner tomorrow night when members will meet at the Golf Club Hotel. This is his second time as President, hopefully with a less eventful start to the term than last time, about five years ago, when Peter had been diagnosed with prostrate cancer and was inducted by phone from his hospital bed. Peter replaces outgoing President
and club stalwart Robyn Seberry. The club will hold its next car boot sale on Saturday, August 15, in Lions Park at the
end of Lachlan St from 7.30am to 1.30pm. For more information, contact the incoming President, Peter Bright, on 0419 463 803 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or email email@example.com.
