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.
