Life member wears many hats for club
Brunswick District Bowling Club has celebrated its 60th anniversary and appointed Ross Warburton as the latest life member.
Mr Warburton said he first got involved with the club through the social side as a teenager.
The new life member has worn many hats during his time with the club, including captain, president, vice-president, chairman of ground committee and now treasurer. He is also a board member for Bowls WA.
He has followed in his parents’ footsteps – his father was club president and a founding member while his mother also received a life membership.
“Country towns are all about that, following on generation after generation,” Mr Warburton said.
During the club’s celebrations, Mr Warburton’s family hid in the kitchen and surprised him as he was appointed a life member.
“It felt bloody great, it was a real honour to be made a life mem- ber but to have the family there was just amazing,” Mr Warburton said.
Club secretary Roy Scott said about 100 members and supporters attended the event, including Harvey shire president Tania Jackson and Forrest MHR Nola Marino.
