Lowe is celebrating a very special birthday
on 29th March when she reaches the grand
young age of 80.
  Lillian is a wonderful example of how helping
out in your community can keep you young at
heart. At the Seniors Christmas party last year,
Lillian received a long service commitment
certificate for her activities with Home Watch,
which she was involved in setting up and has Lillian 80 years young
been working with as a volunteer for 20 years
or more. But this isn’t the only community activity she’s been involved in over
all those years.
  Lillian’s family Joan, Steve, David and Alan want to wish her a very happy
birthday and send her lots of love and big hugs through the Community
News, as do her in-laws, grand children and great grand children.
I’m sure I speak for all her many friends in the community when I join
