Apex re-opens for business

Celebrating the rebirth of the Lismore Apex Club are (l-r) life member Graeme Arnett, senior active member Butch Verardo and current member Andrew Davis.

After closing their doors last May due to low numbers, the Lismore Apex Club is up and running again after a sudden surge in interest from community-minded locals.

The Lismore Apex Club is for men and women aged 18 to 45 who want to make friends and get involved in small, practical projects that help local people. The group specifically targets people who would normally never ask for help, and according to member Trevor Lyle, its a truly rewarding experience.

We like to target individuals, the little people who normally fall through the cracks, and were currently in the process of organising a Backyard Blitz-style event for a lady whose husband died last year, said Trevor. Its wonderful to help someone out whos not expecting it, and I know personally being part of the group has boosted my own confidence and Ive made wonderful friends. We know how busy people are and we dont put too much pressure on their time. Just a little help can go a long way.

The Lismore Apex Clubs next meeting is on Tuesday, April 11, at the Richmond Tavern in Woodlark Street from 6.30pm. For info on joining phone Trevor on 0400 222 335.
