Notice of Annual General Meeting
Remembrance Day 2020
They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old;
age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning,
we will remember them.
Remembrance Day in Australia commemorates the noble sacrifices of armed forces and civilians during times of war. At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, one minute of silence is observed across the country to mark the cessation of hostilities on the Western front during WW1 after over four years of gruesome warfare.

Congratulations to former East Burwood junior Jordan Ridley who tonight claimed the Essendon best and fairest award capping off his remarkable rise into one of the league’s elite defenders.
Jordan entered the 2020 season having played only nine senior games in three years at the Bombers but played every game this year and established himself as an outstanding intercept defender

His award citation read “For service to Australian rules football and sports administration”
This is truly deserved recognition for more that 40 years of service and volunteer work with a large number of sporting bodies.
Rob served two stints on the committee at the Rams holding the positions of treasurer, vice president and president (2014-2017) at the Rams.
He was also both President and Vice President of the EFNL and is a life member of that organisation.
He has also held positions with the Royal Melbourne Yacht Club, Blackburn South Junior Football Club, North Kew Football Club, Victorian Metropolitan Football League and Sporting Inclusion Australia.
He is currently treasurer at the Donvale Football.
As a testament to his willingness to roll up his sleeves and get the job done, he has on many occasions spent the afternoon in the beer both flipping burgers.
From everyone at the East Burwood Football Club congratulations Rob on your well deserved award.

Help Tim Goldie Get Home To His Children
Dedicated and loving father of three, Tim, has tragically become a paraplegic after contracting a rare staph infection following a medical procedure. A former athlete, Tim has a long road ahead at rehabilitation to try to function independently as a paraplegic.
In order to be discharged from hospital and return to the family home, significant modifications to allow mobility need to be made, and specialised equipment and vehicle modifications are also needed.Tim is an active member of the local community, including the East Burwood Football Club, and looks forward to resuming his attendance at his son’s football matches. Single parent Tim has been in hospital since February; the kids are desperately missing their father and can’t wait to have him home.
