Working Bee @BMYS Sunday 10th September 2023

Approximately 60 volunteer members plus the Social Committee came along early on Sunday morning to assist the Site Committee with some big improvements to our facilities plus taking on all those little jobs that just need to be done.

The Club was ‘spruced up” with weeding, pruning, cleaning, polishing, painting, and more as well as completing major improvements to our boat parking bays and the roof/walls of Geoff’s shed.

We thank our friends Charlie & Wayne for driving from Wangaratta to help us on the day.

Special thanks to our Working Bee section leaders including:

Gary Tragardh- Gatekeeper; Michael Busuttil- Rubbish removal; Geoff Hill & Gary Viner- Gardens; Lindsay Robinson- Cleaning; Dean Atkinson- Bobcat services; Nick Conidi- Installing new parking strips; Michael Shacklock (& his son) for Roofing repairs; plus our favourite Site member ring in Tony Huxham- Painting.

A highlight of the day was the morning tea & BBQ lunch put on by the Social Committee ably led by John Giuliano.

Also special thanks to Club sponsor Matt Kenny and his team from ALL Residential/ALL Commercial Real Estate. They did a great job on the day cooking part of the lunch and provided those present with a gift bag.

Acting Site Director Mark Mackie who capably led the Working Bee pointed out that it was pleasing to have a number of relatively new members present. He thanked all members who assisted him and his team on the day.

Thanks to all members who supported the Club at our 2023 Spring Working Bee.
