Presidents News. Round 10

Dear St Marys GJFC Members,

It’s round 10 this weekend and the weather is starting to turn against us. While it’s great for footy it does test the resolve of our spectators on these cold and wet winter days. Lets still get out there and support our players in the true Burra spirit.

In Memoriam

On a sad note the Executive Committee, on behalf of all members, would like to pass on our sincere condolences to two great St Marys families after the sad passing of family members.

To Mark Galea and the entire Galea family on the passing earlier this week of Lou Galea. The Galea family have long been associated with the club and are also one of our major sponsors. Our deepest sympathy to all the Galea family.

To the Hennessey family on the sad passing recently of Jack Hennessey. Our deepest sympathy to Gary, Penny, and the entire family at this sad time.

It is families like the Galea’s and Hennessey’s that define our great club and we wish them all the best during these difficult times.

This Sunday Night is Under 14’s Night.

It’s Under 14’s this Sunday, June 29th starting from 5.30pm. The St Marys JFC would love to invite every player and their family and friends to come along and celebrate the season, have a few drinks and make some friends!
We will as usual provide complimentary pizzas for the players to eat. We will also be serving 3 different types of pasta and Salad for the adults at the very reasonable price of $7.50. The bar will be open as well so please make the effort to come down and celebrate the season to date and hear what the coaches have to say.

There will be the Joker Jackpot – your chance to win $350 cash for just a $2 outlay or a Seafood Tray valued at over $100 donated by Fishi Business who are situated on the 1st Floor of Greensborough Plaza! The choice is yours. At worst if you don’t select the Joker you receive a consolation prize of a bottle of St Mary’s wine.

There will also be the Lucky Guernsey Number Giveaway. A number will be drawn at random and a player who wears that Guernsey number this season will walk away with a $25 Rebel voucher.

That’s three chances to win something on the night!!!
