Our Club’s Latest Happenings

4th July 2018

The club attended a park dedication for Jenny Fourez who worked at our local Bunnings store & did an incredible job of looking after all the local community groups with their fundraising BBQ’s at the store. 
Sadly last year she was killed in a car accident & the community got behind the idea of having the park next to the store named after her. She did so much for the community & will be greatly missed.
