Western Athletics celebrates 20 years

20th anniversary

On the 12th September approximately 140 people helped celebrate the 20th anniversary of this wonderful club. The organising committee would like to thank all those that attended the evening to help make it such a successful night. To see past and present athletes together ranging in age from approximately 12 to 75 was wonderful.

A huge thank you also goes to the Italian Sports Club for their patience and professionalism both leading up to the evening and during the night. They were amazing to work with.

We would also like to recognise the wonderful job Sam Mahoney did being MC for the night. You were fantastic.

Thank you to the following people for their generous donations:

  • Tania Shanahan for your amazing paintings and
  • Fernando Canepa for printing of all the invitations

Finally acknowledgment should be given to the following organisations that donated door prizes for the evening:

  • Shadow Fax Wines - 2 bottles of wine valued at $22 each
  • Aqua Pulse Swim Centre – One Group Pass valued at $29
  • Italian Sports Club – Venue voucher valued at $25

Additionally a big thank you to Mechelle for her hard work on keeping everything on track :)
