Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
Ray Reilly nominated for Life Membership
Zone 9 Honorary Secretary Ray Reilly has been nominated for Life Membership of the Zone and this has been endorsed at this months Management Committee meeting. Under the constitution, the nomination has to be adopted at the AGM in September next, and this should be a formality.
The honour is a recognition of the enormous contribution and the time that Ray has given to bowls generally, and the Zone in particular, over so many years. He has been Hon. Secretary of the Zone since 2002 and prior to that he was secretary of the Upper North Shore District for some years. He has served under four Zone Presidents- John Younghusband, Geoff Campbell, Bob Moran and now Dennis Taylor and members of the Management Committee would be aware of his efficiency and tireless effort he has shown as secretary and as a member of the executive. Copy of President Dennis' recommendation is attached.
Ray's services as Zone Secretary come free to the Zone, the position is an unpaid one whereas several other Zones have substantial outside secretarial / admin expense which of course impacts on members affiliation fees.
Ray is a member of Roseville Bowling Club and also a long time member of Willoughby Park Bowling Club.
Congratulations Ray - a recognition well deserved.
