Ann-Marie Argent, who turns 85 next month, has been a Medowie Lion for 11 years.

She was born in Portsmouth, England, and migrated to Australia back in 1964.

Ann-Marie and her husband have three grown, married daughters who have in turn given them nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

When asked what Ann-Marie loved most about being a Lion, she told News Of The Area, “The friendships are wonderful!.”

“I so enjoy helping the community and getting involved in so many wonderful local, community events.”

“But you know, I have to say that I love the barbecues,” she said.

“Being from England, I didn’t have much experience, but now I give myself a pat on the back, because I’ve definitely polished and perfected my barbecue skills.”

Ann-Marie is involved in a number of other community endeavours, including the popular Overflow Church, that she credits as being a very special group of people doing wonderful things for the community.

Ann-Marie said her favourite thing about Medowie is “the caring people always offering to help others around them”.

Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as in communities worldwide.

Their volunteer efforts go beyond the support of vision care, to addressing unmet health and education needs worldwide.

Be a part of the change and consider joining the Medowie Lions Club.

If you would like to be a part of Medowie Lions, meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday night of the month in the Governor’s room at the Bull n Bush.
