Thankyou Euroa for gen­eros­ity

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

I WOULD like to thank the very gen­er­ous com­mu­nity mem­bers of Euroa who helped the Euroa Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion com­plete our bas­ket­ball half court and ring at the Euroa Lions Park.

Firstly, thanks to Max Fur­naletto, who com­pleted the works, do­nat­ing his time, ma­te­ri­als and re­sources to en­sure the project came to fruition.

With­out Max’s gen­er­ous and en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port, this project would not have hap­pened.

Thank you Max for your kind, hum­ble, com­mu­nity spirit - you are one of the best young men around and the per­fect ex­am­ple that our young kids can as­pire to.

Thanks also to Kurt Denke and Wade who com­pleted the con­crete at a great rate, and par­tic­i­pated in meet­ings and had the ex­per­tise to ad­vise us.

Thanks to Marnie Bur­ton and Bo­ral for help­ing us out.

Thanks to the Euroa Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Group and the Strath­bo­gie Shire for pro­vid­ing fund­ing for the project and es­pe­cially to Scott Wat­son, John Ma­son and An­thony Cini who were al­ways en­cour­ag­ing and sup­port­ive.

Thanks to Fiona Na­tion for her en­cour­age­ment and her as­sis­tance in se­cur­ing fund­ing from Be­nalla Mag­is­trates Court.

Thank you to the Euroa Lion’s Club who were al­ways easy to work with and do­nated some money to help us stay un­der bud­get. Well done for cre­at­ing a great park in our town!

Thanks to Michael Har­vey - our build­ing sur­veyor - for help­ing a novice, like me, to en­sure ev­ery ‘I’ was dot­ted and ev­ery ‘t’ was crossed.

Thanks to our tire­less bas­ket­ball com­mit­tee, es­pe­cially to Jar­rod Gar­den, who al­ways had the tools ready and had the ex­per­tise to help out when­ever he was needed.

Thanks to Jon Reid, our trea­surer, for manag­ing the dol­lar side of the project and par­tic­i­pat­ing in meet­ings and ask­ing the ques­tions we needed to know.

Also thanks to Bren­don Rowe and Di Marin for their work to get the court ready in the fi­nal stages and an­swer­ing many emails through­out the project.

Thanks to Tony and Ge­orgie at Splash Gecko, who made our new sign at a frac­tion of the cost.

Thanks also needs to go to my fam­ily and hus­band, who have held my own house to­gether when I’ve been at meet­ings or writ­ing emails or grants, or speak­ing to peo­ple about the next step.

We re­ally live in a great town with great peo­ple and I’m re­ally proud of how so many peo­ple have some to­gether to achieve some­thing that will ben­e­fit our kids now and into the fu­ture.

We hope this court pro­vides many hours of en­joy­ment and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity for our young peo­ple.

Melinda Wat­son, pres­i­dent Euroa Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion
