On Monday, 12th September, we held our footy morning tea at Eltham Central Pavilion. Around 50 people attended and, from the comments received, it is clear that everyone had a great time. Tony Shaw, ex Collingwood player and coach, was very entertaining and had the audience in the palm of his hand as he shared stories of his upbringing and his footy career. Tony is a local (Doreen) and kindly donated his time freely for this event, so thank you Tony!
We held a raffle with the proceeds of $170 being donated to the Eltham Junior Football club, who expressed thanks for our donation. Thank you to the Greensborough Hotel and Dan Murphy’s of Eltham for the prizes. Maureen Meaney was the lucky winner.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended the event and a special thank you to the volunteers who assisted with setting up, serving and then cleaning up at the end.
