Rotary stalwarts cook up a storm for charity

Steve and Marjorie Payton will be marking their 29th year manning the Rotary Barbecue at the Lismore Show next Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Steve Payton and his wife Marjorie have been running the Rotary Barbecue at the Lismore Show for 29 years now. With all that experience, they certainly know how to cook a steak.

Im the managing director of the barbecue, he joked. And Marjorie is the CEO.

The barbecue is a fundraiser for Rotary, raising around $6000 for charity each year, and will run for three days starting next Thursday, October 19.

With up to a dozen people cooking on two shifts it certainly takes some organising and the couple work 12 hour days.

The fellowship is just great, said Marjorie. Its so much fun all together. People love seeing their doctor or dentist or lawyer behind the counter serving them their sausage sandwich. And no appointment is necessary.

Meanwhile, if anyone is interested in getting behind the barbie, Rotary is always looking for new members. Call David Fryer on 6621 9976 for more information.
