14/4/19 Trevor Whitelaw OAM.

At the Annual General Meeting on Sunday 14 April 2019 Trevor Whitelaw stepped down as President after 21 consecutive years at the helm of the Brighton Sub-Branch.

Paul Spencer commented to the meeting on the enormity of Trevor’s dedication and service to the Sub-branch, RSL State Bowls and now RSL State Headquarters. Much of Trevor’s presidency followed after the halcyon days of the RSL, and he led us through a period of gradual decline and the extremely difficult decision of transferring from our home of 70 years to new premises shared with our co-tenants the Brighton Bowling Club. Without Trevor’s leadership it is doubtful that we would be surviving today.

A mighty effort and we are all pleased that he has accepted the role of Treasurer to continue his involvement with us. He also still holds various positions at State Headquarters and his overall workload shows no sign of stopping. Well done Trev from all of the committee and members.
