EXCITING times are ahead for the members out at the East Shepparton Bowls Club, as a huge pavilion and new green is being constructed to allow for bowling in all types of weather.

The project has been in the works for the last 18 months, with building commencing on July 1 and set to be completed by the end of this year. The $1.7 million (approx.) project has been partially funded by the federal government and local council, but the club is still seeking more funds to cover the rest of the costs.

The 120 club members have put their heads and hands together to organise fundraisers in order to cover the remaining costs of the upgrade and help out when they can with the works around the club.

Starting on Wednesday, September 25, the East Shepparton Bowls Club will host a fashion parade from 1:30pm with afternoon tea provided and tickets just $10. There will also be a dance on Saturday, October 5 featuring No Big Deal and guest artist, Jimmy Johnson with supper provided and drinks at bar prices. Tickets are available for $18 a head. To book tickets call Josie on 0411 858 433.
