Biggenden Club has Christmas in its sights with planning of fair

IT IS all systems go for the Biggenden Apex Club after its annual meeting last Wednesday night.

After a hiatus of six months, the club was in the position of having to fold due to lack of members.

Phil Sharps has been elected president, while Beth Stralow has taken on the secretary role and Robbie Radel treasurer duties.

Mr Sharps said there were a number of prospective members.

“But we are still keen to hear from more who are willing to volunteer their time,” he said.

“Apex isn’t only for men aged 18-45, women are most welcome.

“Future meetings will be more formalised, with the saying of the ideals and invocation.”

With the support of the Bundaberg Apex Club, members are now busy preparing for its Christmas Fair on Saturday, December 21.

Mr Sharps said depending on the weather, fireworks would likely be part of the festivities.

“We are presently looking at sponsorship but the usual markets, ham and seafood wheel, barbecue and the wheelbarrow full of goodies for the lucky RSVP ticket,” he said.

“Santa will be making an appearance, as well as rides for the children.”

Mr Sharps said while the Christmas Fair was the main fundraiser, the club was also considering Friday night raffles.
