The Parkes Dragon Boat Club welcomed Member for Orange, Phil Donato MP to Lake Endeavour for the first time last Friday.
He came with good news announcing the club had received two grants. “I am pleased to announce funding of $6,500 under the 2018 Community Building Partnership Program, and a further $1,640 under the 2018 Local Sport Grant Program,” Phil said.
The larger grant will go towards two dragon boat trailers, and the second one will be used for the training and accreditation for the coaches.
“It’s wonderful to see our dragon boating community continue to thrive, and it’s an honour to be able to support them in their endeavours. Sport is a vital part of our regional living that unites us all,” said Phil.
