Flying high as 2 Pennant Flags celebrated

After another week of wet and dull weather, Saturday arrived with welcome clear skies as Ex Servos prepared to celebrate the great year in District Pennants. Just over 40 members and guests were in attendance to witness the proud unfurling of both the No 4 and No 6 District Pennants.

Ex Servos President Eddie Lee opened proceedings by welcoming members and special guests District President Max Young, Vice President Bill Pryde, Ex Servos Ladies President Isabel McLeod and other invited guests. Everyone then gathered around the yardarm as Eddie Lee and Steve Hollington hoisted the No 4 and 6 pennant flags high into the morning sunshine.
District Vice President Bill Pryde then presented our No 4 side with their well earned badges, with the No 6 winning side having already received their badges in May, after their playoff victory. Also awarded on the day, appreciation badges to; Tim McCormack, Steve Hollington, Harry Griffiths, Ian Abberley and Eddie Lee.

On completion of formalities, all bowlers made the most of the warm sunshine with a social game of bowls, followed by a sit down meal in the Clubs Jack Elliot room.
