Al Crock­ett ac­cepts new pres­i­den­tial role, moose hat and all

Mansfield Courier - - NEWS -

THE Mansfield Apex Club held its an­nual changeover of lead­er­ship last Fri­day night.

Out­go­ing pres­i­dent Dale An­drew thanked all of the ac­tive mem­bers and ‘Greypex­i­ans’ who have helped to keep the club go­ing through­out the year.

“We did a good job main­tain­ing our pre­vi­ous com­mit­ments such as the Mer­ri­jig Rodeo, Christ­mas Trees, Good Fri­day Ap­peal and The Cat­tle­man’s Gath­er­ing,” he said.

“We ended the year in a strong fi­nan­cial po­si­tion which has en­abled us to sup­port lo­cal com­mu­nity groups such as the ju­nior bas­ket­ball, Aus­kick and the ten­nis as­so­ci­a­tion among others.

“It was great to have Boss from Ve­ni­lale at the han­dover.

“Mansfield Apex Club helps to spon­sor the Friends of Mansfield li­ai­son of­fi­cer in Ve­ni­lale, so it was great to hear how things are de­vel­op­ing over there.”

The cer­e­mo­nial moose hat and chain of of­fice was handed over to in­com­ing pres­i­dent Al Crock­ett, as his proud fa­ther and life mem­ber An­drew Crock­ett watched on.

An­drew (Crock­ett) was pres­i­dent of the club in 1975.

Al Crock­ett thanked the club for the op­por­tu­nity to lead the club over the next year.

He is look­ing for­ward to grow­ing the club with a few new mem­bers, get­ting more ac­tive in help­ing out the com­mu­nity and or­gan­is­ing more events on the so­cial side of the club.

As his first act as pres­i­dent, Al in­ducted Norm McNeilly into the club as a mem­ber.
