Healthy drug-free lives for kids

TWEED and Byron residents have an opportunity to find our firsthand what our children are learning about living healthy, drug free lives and have some fun along the way with Life Education's giraffe, Healthy Harold.

A fun charity dinner supporting children's drug and health education will be hosted by the Lions Club of Murwillumbah with the support of other service clubs in the area at the Victory Hotel, Mooball, on Saturday night.

Proceeds will go to the Tweed/Byron Life Action Group to support the cost of providing the Life Education programs in local schools.

Special guest speaker, Michael Parrington, is the Education and Training Manager at Life Education NSW in Sydney.

Mr Parrington will speak about the rewarding challenges of managing Life Education's Drug and Health Education operation in schools across NSW, including the Tweed and Bryon local government areas.

With a teaching career spanning over 30 years, Mr Parrington will share his experience of working with young people in the areas of personal development covering drug education, life skills, and peer support and leadership programs.

The dinner commences at 6.30 pm and the cost is $25 per person for a two course dinner. The Victory Hotel Social Golf Club raffles on the night will be donated to the Lions dinner for Life Education.

Anyone wishing to attend the dinner is asked to phone Greg Pile 02 6672 3554 or Leo Kelly 02 6677 1242.

A free bus from Murwillumbah will depart Knox Park at 6pm (NSW) on Friday.
