Southern 80 thanks key players for support

By Riverine Herald

MOAMA Water Sports Club (MWSC) hosted a presentation night recently to thank local community groups and clubs for their support of the Southern 80.

This year almost $30,000 was given back to these groups in donations for their assistance.

‘‘The club couldn’t run our event without the support of all these groups who do such a variety of roles,’’ MWSC president Steve Shipp said.

During the presentations Echuca United Football Netball Club representative Adrian Sanderson thanked MWSC for their support of the club.

He noted Echuca United had been lending a hand at the Southern 80 for about 20 years and the event had been a major boost to their fundraising.

Echuca Football Netball Club’s Brian Wilkinson echoed Adrian’s comments and said the club would use funds raised for its junior programs.

Each MWSC director who presented plaques congratulated the groups on their efficient, smooth work over the weekend.

The groups recognised were:

■ Echuca United Football Netball Club

■ Rochester Angling Club

■ Echuca Lions Club

■ Tongala Fire Brigade

■ Echuca Moama Hockey Club

■ Lockington Bamawm United Football Netball Club

■ Echuca Football Netball Club
