FROM THE PRESIDENT – WILL PHILLIPS
A very Merry Christmas to all our Club Members.
Thanks to everyone who committed to making our club great in 2016, outgoing President Geoff O’Sullivan, the hardworking Board members and a plethora of volunteers, without who the club could not function, have all made tremendous contributions.
In 2016, we improved in all areas of the club and we encourage everyone to get involved and help out where they can, every little bit helps and I can assure you that we appreciate your efforts.
2017 brings a new fixture and challenges, your Club Board will do everything within its power to achieve success at our club and we will deliver this with a renewed vigour and tenacity, similar to what is expected of our players.
We have some exciting things planned for 2017, Good Friday Night Football & Netball is back with games against Shepparton United on April 14, planning is continuing for the ANZAC day match as a supporter of the local RSL sub-branch , many new players to both football & netball teams, New female change room facilities adjacent to the netball courts and new look social events & functions throughout the year.
Please make welcome all the new players and their families to our club, share with them our club facilities and enjoy the success of our teams in 2017.
As a major sporting club in the Goulburn Valley we find ourselves in a position to affect the lives of many people, enabling healthy activity, competition and community around the club, we must respect this position of influence and be the best we can at every opportunity to afford an even greater club for all in 2017.
I can be contacted on mobile, 0438 219612 at any time if you would like to discuss your club.
On behalf of everyone at Deakin Reserve, Home of the Bears, my very best wishes for a safe and happy festive season and a most prosperous new year.
See you in 2017.
