Book launch ded­i­cated to veteran golfers

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - Out & About -

The ‘Grand­mas, Grand­pas and Birdies’ book was launched in De­niliquin on Sun­day, with all pro­ceeds to ben­e­fit re­search into Mo­tor Neu­rone Dis­ease.

The book was writ­ten by poet Noel Hayes with car­toons by De­niliquin’s Alan Lord and for­mer lo­cal res­i­dent John Jansen. It was pub­lished lo­cally by Garry Baker.

It is ded­i­cated to veteran golfers across Aus­tralia, and its launch took place at regis­tra­tion day for the De­niliquin Golf Club’s Veteran’s Week of Golf.

As well known veteran golfer and Jer­ilderie res­i­dent Ian Sned­don had passed away from MND last year, NSW Veteran Golfers As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Ian Vi­dler nom­i­nated re­search into the dis­ease as the pre­ferred re­cip­i­ent of book sale funds.

‘Grand­mas, Grand­pas and Birdies’ is avail­able at De­niliquin Golf Club.
