Pymble Golf Club Committee

2016 Melbourne Cup Day Luncheon

This year the Pymble golf club ladies’ Melbourne cup committee chose to support Bowel Cancer Australia for their fundraising which began with a fashion parade and afternoon tea in June.
 
The parade showcased golf apparel from three different companies and was attended by nearly a hundred ladies from the club. It was a great way to begin our fundraising for the year and they raised nearly $2500 from the day.
 
The next big event was a luncheon on Melbourne Cup Day which began with nearly 80 members and guests having a fun game of golf and 30 ladies playing bridge. Lunch followed with 200 guests attending.

Amy's Marathon

2016 Melbourne Marathon

A big congratulations to Amy for supporting Bowel Cancer Australia through the 2016 Melbourne Marathon.
 
"It was my first marathon and it was a very windy day in Melbourne so it was tough! I decided to raise funds for Bowel Cancer Australia as a family friend was recently diagnosed. I also put a story in my work’s newsletter about my fundraising and asking people to Join the Bowel Movement so there was a lot of discussion last week at work as well as donations. My fundraising page is open until the end of the month but so far I’m up to $2650 which is well above my original goal of $1500". said Amy.

Pat's Place

Loxton Aero’s Club

One of Loxton Aero’s Club members, Patrick Vowles developed bowel cancer and passed away in 2011. As a tribute to his contribution to the club built an extension to the club-rooms as a BBQ area and named “Pat’s Place” in honour of him.
 
Duani Vowles on behalf of her family officially opened the kitchen, unveiling the sign above the door proclaiming this as “Pat’s Place” and thanked the Club for honouring her late husband with this kitchen extension. “Pat would be very chuffed to have this kitchen built, and he’d love to have all pilots and friends of the Aero Club to enjoy this resource, it’s a great addition to the club. The family and I are very thankful to the club for naming this in his honour” she said.
