On a sad note, we were all very sorry to hear of Barbara Farmer’s passing after a long illness. For those who are not aware, Barbara was the wife of Jim Farmer a long time supporter of our club. Jim is a Life Member of the St. George Leagues Club and a foundation member of our squash club from the early 1960’s. He is largely responsible in helping our club remain active by supporting us via an annual Leagues Club grant. At the present time Jim is on the St George Leagues Sports Council as well as being a member of the St. George Leagues Club Board of Directors. Thanks Jim for all your great support over the years. Our thoughts and sympathies are with you and your family at this very sad time in your life.
In conclusion, those interested in playing comp squash for the club or requiring information, can contact me on 0415 641581. So until next time, good squashing everybody!
