Unexpected changes

By Ceri B

As many of you may have read, we were saddened to learn that Jackie Petley, Fiona Woodard and Andrew Nicholls have decided to step down from their roles on the committee.

The club as a whole and the committee thank them for their service to the club, I’m sure we all appreciate the years of dedication and hard work they have put in. Between them, they have contributed well over three decades of service to Yarra Yarra Rowing Club. The club is such a healthy position due to the labours of like-minded individuals who have volunteered a considerable amount of their time.
