Keilor Bowls Club: season opening

On Saturday,  25 August  2012, I had the pleasure of officially opening the greens for the Keilor Bowls Club for the season 2012-13.

I take this opportunity to thank club chairman Peter Livy and president Joe Watkins  for  their hospitality last  Saturday. A highlight  was  the club’s recognition of super-veteran Eric Fynmore for his long, dedicated service to the club.  Eric commented  that the club was his ‘second family’.

Members may not be aware  that  outside  of  bowls, the Keilor Bowls Club  is  developing  its  own political narrative. Indeed it was visited by the now Premier and Deputy Premier on the eve of the last  state election and I visited the club  the  night before the Niddrie by-election.  The rest is history. The Keilor Bowls Club is a strong club, it is a welcoming club, and I wish it every success for the season.
