Lambton Party

On Saturday night I went to the Lambton Party. It might sound like the launch of a new (very local)  political party but it really was just… a party. Norm Farquharson, a local resident, decided he wanted to organise a party for people from Lambton.

He is a musician and knows lots of people so he put together a fun evening at the Lambton Bowling Club with live music, finger food, a raffle and a couple of fundraising games. There was over 150 people and any funds raised go to Lambton Public School (because his  children were students there).

What a great example of a community building! Norm is clearly a community leader with links to many parts of the community. As a community minded resident he is a real asset to our community.

I love the fact that it was organised by an individual who wanted to make a difference rather than being . Congratulations to Norm for a great evening that brought people together.
