Millicent Lions meeting on Tuesday 1st December hosted Lions from visiting clubs for the handover of funds raised on the recent Birdsville Tractor run fundraiser. Members of the Millicent, Naracoorte and Hahndorf clubs banded together for the trek to Birdsville to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. A combined tally of $29,295-46 was raised with Millicent raising $13,076.05 minus expenses leaving $11,181.50 in total. A financial report was prepared by Treasurer Keith Fields.

The RFDS averages three (3) flights a day from the local area over the past 20 years said President John Chalmers receiving the cheque on behalf of the RFDS.
