Please RSVP RON CANN racann@dcsi.net.au 5623 5358

On Sunday afternoon 26th July, following the Drouids vs. Aztecs U17, Women and Men’s matches, the Drouids Club will be holding a farewell gathering for Deb and Bill Wiglesworth and their family.

Deb and Bill are leaving the district after many years and a very long and important association with the Drouids Hockey Club and the West Gippsland Hockey Association.

Those of you who have joined the Club in more recent years may not have had an opportunity to get to know Deb and Bill, so a short explanation for all.

You know how we all value the club in how all skill levels are welcomed, how you and your children are encouraged and supported to do their best, how kids are acknowledged not just for goals or the like but for effort, their perseverance, endeavor, the application they show; and upholding team values?
Well, whilst we all support and practice these values, it just so happens that in part this is only possible because of the past members of OUR club and how some people have played such a pivotal role – one such person is Deb Wigglesworth.

Deb was a long term President of Drouids, leading the club for most of the 90’s and up until 2009.

She has been a skilled player, coach, umpire and tireless worker in all respects and in recognition of her contribution to Drouids was awarded the Club’s first Life Membership. Deb has also contributed widely to the West Gippsland Association and served as the WGHA Umpire Convenor in more recent years.

Deb and Bill’s 3 children Daniel, Sophie and Claire were all Drouids players, starting as youngsters and developing into very talented adult players.
Full details of the date, time, and what to bring for the Farewell Gathering are in the attachment. Please make an effort to come if you can and acknowledge the important role Deb has played for us all.
