ANNUAL CUP EVE PICNIC - 6 NOVEMBER 2017
The Annual WRAG Cup Eve Picnic was held at the Northern Pavilion Reserve - Glen Waverley on 6 November 2017 with almost 40 members present. The twice annual Special General Meeting took place during the luncheon break.
2017 - WRAG LIFE MEMBER AWARDS
At the completion of the meeting WRAG members unanimously adopted the WRAG Management Committee recommendation to award WRAG's first ever Life Membership Couple to Helmut & Rona Meuris.
Helmut has served as President for five years in two stints, in 2009/2010 and again stepping in during a crisis period from 2013 to 2015.
In fact Helmet may well have saved WRAG from winding-up in 2013 when the AGM failed to elect a President.
Rona has served as a committee member in 2007/2008, and in supporting Helmut during his five years as President, particularly the last three years, and in providing our very popular hamper prizes like the one today at the Cup Eve Picnic and our Christmas hampers over a number of years.
Rona and Helmut have been involved in a number of WRAG Groups, including; the Golden Club, Old Time Movies, Table Tennis and Walking.
