Residents of the Northern Rivers will have the opportunity to say a personal ‘thank you’ to outgoing Lismore mayor, Jenny Dowell at a special function to be held at Lismore City Hall next month.
The event is being organised by the Lord’s Taverners Northern NSW, as acknowledgement of the former mayor’s involvement in the charity’s work to raise funds to support disadvantaged and/or disabled young people.
ABC North Coast Breakfast presenter Joanne Shoebridge will act as MC for the evening, which will also feature live music performances and catering.
Chairman of the Lord’s Taverners Northern NSW, Graeme Hoskins cited the great effect that Jenny Dowell has had on the region as cause for the celebratory event.
‘We wanted to arrange something that would give our members and corporate partners, as well as people from the local community, a chance to personally thank Jenny for the stellar job she’s done not just for our organisation, but for the whole region over the past 12 years,’ Mr Hoskins said.
The public are invited to attend the event and a donation of $5 will be collected at the door to assist the Lord’s Taverners to continue their work to provide greater opportunities for young people.
Lismore Thanks Jenny Dowell, Friday November 4, 4:30 – 7:30pm, Lismore City Hall.
