National Volunteer Week held from 16 May to 22 May is a celebration of all volunteers and an opportunity to recognise the vital contributions they make within our communities. Often behind the scenes, volunteers are an integral part of society and by working alongside young people and seniors, we are better together.
Yarrambat Park Golf Course celebrated its volunteers with morning and afternoon tea; followed by a presentation to say thank you.
Volunteers are the backbone of the venue and their hard work and commitment never go unnoticed. From a friendly smile and welcoming handshake to forming ideas on how to grow memberships. Volunteers give their time freely and take pride in being an integral part of our golfing community.
With morning tea for the men’s committee of Yarrambat Golf Club, they were treated to coffees and sneaky caramel milkshakes. When the ladies finished their afternoon round, a treat of afternoon tea, coffee and wine wrapped up the festivities.
Howard (pictured above), is a committee member and volunteer and has been a member of Yarrambat Golf Club for 12 years and a committee member for four. With members a strong focus, his leadership is a combination of friendliness, approachability and respect for others. As President of the Greensborough RSL for 25 years, Howard has spent many years volunteering and this is a testament to his character as a truly generous and kind gentleman.
“My attitude towards volunteering is, you don’t step on other people’s toes and you help each other out,” Howard said.
As Yarrambat Park Golf Course continues to grow, it values the contributions of its volunteers and understands the true importance of what it means to have a community of golfers who want the very best for its members.
