2016 President Lauren's Day



President Lauren’s Day Tuesday 28th June

A free day was given to the Members in honour of President’s Lauren’s three year stint as President of our Club. Lauren has always had the Club at heart, and has worked tirelessly over the past three years, with the vision of making our Club the best on the Coast. She was rewarded in 2015 being a participant in, and seeing Ettalong win the No 1 Pennant Flag for the first time since 1988. A highlight of her Presidency. I cannot see Lauren sitting on her laurels for too long, as I am sure, a lot of what she has envisaged for the Club has yet to be fulfilled. Lauren also showed great courage, and tenacity, to carry on in times of adversity. Go now, and enjoy a well earned rest. On the day, the Auditorium looked lovely bedecked in the colour lilac, and the official table was covered in balloons and flowers, "thanks" to our hard working Committee. Formalities were kept to a minimum, and after a very nice BBQ lunch, Marie Brailey V.P. spoke about Lauren’s three year Presidency. Lauren replied, saying how much she enjoyed her three years, and spoke of her love for Ettalong Memorial W.B.C. and the Ettalong Bowlers. The Members gave Lauren a lovely tree of life necklace as a parting gift. We all say “Thank you,” for giving of your time over the past three years.


It would be remiss of me not to mention Wayne Williams. Wayne has worked in the background over the past three years, manning the BBQ, driving the bus, and helping out whenever needed. “Thank you Wayne” from all the girls.
