LITHOW Quota has had another couple of busy months, firstly with its annual Trivia Night held at the Lithgow Golf Club and the World Service Night held at Fatima Hall, as well as the installation of its new executive.
The Trivia Night’s theme was Back To The ’60s, since Lithgow Quota has been going for 60 years and there were prizes for the best costume and best table.
The trivia night is always a fun night and a wonderful fundraiser for the community.
Many thanks go to Barry (Chubby) Perry who, once again, compiled the questions and compered the night.
The World Service Night was Indian-themed with proceeds going to help with educational and nutritional needs for a new school being set-up for homeless children in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) India.
Once again, the night was fun-filled with entertainment being provided by the Belly B Dancers who performed four routines.
A selection of Indian dishes was served and members were also treated to a cooking demonstration of an Indian dessert by Ruth Kan.
There was also a quiz on geographical locations around the world as well as our own district, and to round off the night the belly dancers gave Quotarians and their guests some lessons on various moves which certainly provided plenty of laughs and giggles.
Lithgow Quota’s installation of its new executive was held recently at its meeting hall, Red Cross House.
President Marilyn Tulley read out her report detailing the many and varied activities Lithgow Quota had undertaken throughout the year.
Once again a considerable amount of money was raised for the community.
Some of the many organisations receiving funds were represented on the night to receive their cheques including the VRA, Cooinda, Tabulam Cottages, Three Tree Lodge, Breast Cancer Support and Lithgow Cancer Group and Lithgow Girl Guides.
Supper was provided by Quotarian Jennie Lovett and her committee and the installation cake, made and decorated by Quotarian Margaret Hickie, was cut by new member Swee Choo and president Marilyn Tulley.
One of the features of installation night is to award 100 per cent attendance badges to those members who have not missed a meeting for the year.
Of note is the fact that Quotarian Judy White received her 58 years 100 per cent attendance badge – a wonderful achievement and world record in Quota International.
The next major fundraiser is the craft fair being held at the Lithgow Union Theatre on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 19, 20 and 21.
Anyone wishing to hold a stall call Carol Marsland on 6351 2039.
Lithgow Quota would welcome anyone who might like to sit in on meetings at anytime to find out more of what they do and perhaps join the group.
Being involved in Quota is a great way to help the community while having fun at the same time.
