In line with Southern Vets policy to support a local community organisation each year with a significant donation, Kangarilla CFS accepted $1000 from the Club on 7 August as our 2017 recipient. President David Milne, Secretary Frank Schoen and Treasurer Richard Tormet fronted up on a dark and cool evening to make the presentation.
Subsequent to the presentation, David was able to re-connect one of the CFS members, Bob Sadleir, with his old friend and past Southern Vet stalwart Steve Hazell, who has lived in Japan for a number of years. Another service Southern Vets has provided!
See attached for the flyer and details of the AHMCC Invitation on August 27th.
On behalf of Robert Freak:
Firstly I want to acknowledge what a terrific club Southern Vets is in caring for its members. It is now three years since my accident. How much I appreciate the Southern Vets riders on that day who did CPR and kept me alive, and all those who have contacted or visited me during the 15 months in the three hospitals, as well as since I’ve come home, and of course those who came to my birthday party.
I would like to shout a coffee & muffin at morning tea (10.30 am) on Thursday 31 August at the Glenelg coffee spot Crema to whoever turns up.
I then intend and feel ready to visit the crash site for the first time.
Thank you to all of you and I look forward to getting to some more races.
