    ADOPT A ROAD

    Club members decided some time ago to adopt the David Low Way from the roundabout at Coolum State High School through to the roundabout at Peregian Beach Hotel as a clean up project on behalf of the Keep Australia Beautiful committee. Several members have been actively involved in this project and their efforts have now been recognised with the Keep Australia Beautiful committee commissioning a sign that has been erected at both ends of this stretch of main road. The latest clean up in May 2014 yielded over 100 kilos of rubbish.
    Another wonderful environmental initiative of the Lions Club of Peregian.
