03 Aug 2017 Valued Volunteer Nominations Now Open
FROM DAVID BERRY
WIMMERA REGIONAL SPORTS ASSEMBLY
VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD
The Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly’s Valued Volunteer of the Year Award is now open for nominations.
There are many well deserving long standing volunteers in our sporting clubs and associations who give so freely of their time each and every week. Whether it’s the timekeeper, groundsman, team manager, coach or canteen person, if it wasn’t for these valuable volunteers our clubs wouldn’t be as great as what they are.
Volunteers are a most valuable resource and to highlight their contribution to sport and recreation in this region all clubs are eligible to nominate one of their long serving volunteers for the “Valued Volunteer of the Year Award”. The award will be presented on September 21 at the winning volunteers club.
Previous winners read like the who’s who of Wimmera volunteers and include such names as Kerry Pearce (basketball), Suzi James (Tri State Games), Lyn Gunning (RDA), Ian Jackson (Football), Peter Miller (Football), Ian Taylor (Shooting), Willie Hanson (Football), Jeff Pekin (Table Tennis), Max Burke (Football Training), Helen Short (Netball), Maurie Wade (Basketball, Cricket), Shurlee Skiller (Netball), Bill Taylor (Natimuk Community Clubs), Maurie Dumesny (Cricket), Sylvia Penny (Greyhound Racing) and Murray and Debbie Hart (jointly) for their long serving assistance to the sporting clubs of Stawell. Nominations are welcome at any time with nomination forms available from the offices of the Assembly or on our website at www.wrsa.org.au, and close on Thursday September 14.
