During the course of last night's AGM the granting of Life Membership of the Club to the following long serving members was announced.
John David, David Burke and Jill Wallis.
This was a very happy occasion with our new Life Members being surprised and humbled with the honour.
John David has been a member of the Club since 1999, joined the Committee in 2003, has held positions of Secretary, Team Manager, Registrar, Vice President and President. In addition, John has managed our cross country team for many years.
David Burke also joined the Club in 1999 and has been our most consistent and at times our highest performing athlete ever since. David joined Committee in 2004, remaining on committee since for 13 years, one of the longest continuous periods of service in the Club history. David has held the role of Treasurer since 2013.
Jill Wallis has been involved with the Club for approximately 25 years, initially supporting son Michael, then husband John, also Life Member and Treasurer for 9 years. Jill has been our regular and reliable official during this period, donating countless hours officiating, specialising as an Athletics Victoria official including operating the photo-finish equipment at Olympic Park and Lakeside Stadium at Championships and major events.
Sincere congratulations to John, David and Jill from all in our wider "Club Family".
