The annual Jaycee Road Toll once again provided a substantial sum for a good cause, This year the proceeds were given equally to the Surf-Life-Saving Clubs, Each club received $155 which will go towards life-saving equipment.

Did you realize that over 30 rescues were made during the past season? And that rescue equipment was involved 80% of the time?

A new adventure playground has been built by Jaycee at the l.H.C. Tony Singer Memorial Pre-school Centre in Disraeli Street. The playground, which will provide a wealth of interest for the youngsters, involved the work of 30 Jaycees over 10 Saturday mornings.
