Free overwhelmed by AGM support
Deniliquin Rams president Clint Free said he was overwhelmed with the turnout at the club’s AGM on Wednesday night.
More than 30 people attended and all executive positions were filled.
Free was returned as president for a second year, joined by Tim Hillier as the club’s new senior vice president and Chris Mitsch as the new junior vice president.
Col McMahon took on the treasurer’s role for a third year, Mel Broadbent is the new executive secretary and Val Meadowcroft was appointed match day secretary once again.
Meagan Rodda is the club’s senior netball coordinator and Anthony Bradley the junior footy development officer.
‘‘All executive positions were filled on the night, which was fantastic,’’ Free said.
‘‘We had an excellent turnout which again shows how much support there is for the club.
‘‘It was humbling to see so many people there (at the AGM) and we also had close to 10 apologies on the night.
‘‘As I said in my president’s report, it’s not just the committee that runs the club, there are about 200 people who volunteer their time for the club throughout the year, from manning the bar at the Ute Muster to match day tasks and working bees — it’s a team effort and we have a wonderful team and a very welcoming club.”
In his treasurer’s report, McMahon said the club had posted a sound profit in the past 12 months and highlighted the significant contribution of the club’s many sponsors.
‘‘The financial report again shows how valued our sponsors are and we can’t thank them enough for their support,’’ he said.
‘‘Without our sponsors our club wouldn’t exist.’’
Free said 13 people in attendance put their hand up to join the general committee and many more were happy to help out on subcommittees.
He said the club’s canteen committee would hold its AGM in November.
Anyone still interested in joining the committee who couldn’t make it on the night is encouraged to contact Free on 0417 042 775.
