BEACHMERE LIONESS GARAGE SALE  “A HUGE SUCCESS”


The Lioness Club of Beachmere held their garage sale this weekend at the home of one of stalwarts of the Club. Di Newell the Lioness Secretary/treasurer has been affiliated with the group for over 15 years and is “nearly” a local to Beachmere after living there for 25 years. Di and her husband, also a Lion, have a strong commitment to the community and supporting those in need.

I bought a beautiful scarf from Rosanna who was manning the counter. She became a member of the Lioness Club when she arrived in Beachmere four years ago. Rosanna wanted to “give back” to her local area and belives it’s a fantastic way to meet people.

There was a multitude of goods for sale from clothing, bric-a-brac, electrical and even a dishwasher. All the goods for sale are donated by the community and are stored in a container. When the container fills up they have a garage sale. This happens two to three times a year, so look out for the notice boards. All proceeds are used to support the Beachmere community. They are currently supporting the school.

The garage sale was well attended by the local community and Di thought it was a fantastic success. Their next endeavour will be the Lioness Spring Fair to be held at Clayton Park. Stall holders are welcome to contact the Lioness Club for details or check out their Facebook page, Beachmere Lioness Club.
