so many people were attending the meeting.

alongside the creek.
8.2 Nomination for Life Memberships
Stuart nominated both Glenys Wilkinson and Lee Gannon for life
membership of the club in recognition of the countless hours
they have devoted to ensuring the club has a viable future.
Stuart said it was probably true that the club would not exist
today if not for their combined efforts in the past four or five
years. Both have played key roles in winning hundreds of
thousands of dollars worth of grants which have enabled the club
to put in place some enviable infrastructure.
Both Glenys and Lee have been involved with the club for many
years and Stuart said Life Membership would recognise their
dedication over such an extended period. He said all involved
with the club owe them both a great debt of gratitude.
Both Glenys and Lee were nominated for Life Membership by
Stuart and seconded by Martin Thompson.
9.0 Date of the Next AGM
