After the floods the club distributed $67,000 towards the flood recovery.

The goods the club purchased from Days Machinery, Betta Electrical and Rural Irrigation went to people impacted by the floods.

Lion Club member Denise Green said the stores would take $100 off any purchases before she even asked.
