DAL­MALLY Com­mu­nity Com­pany marked the re­tire­ment of one of its long­est-serv­ing mem­bers with a pre­sen­ta­tion at its April meet­ing.

John Burke served as the sec­re­tary of the vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tion since its foun­da­tion more than 15 years ago, and has also been the trea­surer.

Mr Burke’s ef­forts have im­pacted many com­mu­nity projects, in par­tic­u­lar Dal­mally’s now thriv­ing com­mu­nity cen­tre.

‘John was in­stru­men­tal in gain­ing the fund­ing for the Dal­mally Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, and for man­ag­ing the cash flow dur­ing the build­ing,’ ex­plained Kenny Black, who takes over as sec­re­tary. ‘The whole com­mu­nity has ben­e­fited from his dili­gence and per­se­ver­ance.’

The com­mit­tee thanked Mr Burke for his ef­forts and long ser­vice, and pre­sented him with a pho­to­graph (by local pho­tog­ra­pher Kenny Gray) of the Dal­mally bridge and mon­u­ment.
