Members of the Morrisburg Golf Club will have some new blood on their executive for the 2012 season with five officers not returning to the executive for another term, including long-time president Sam Laurin and secretary Alice McNairn.
The two, along with 1st vice-president Garry O’Neill, club captain Lance LePage and greens chairman Bob Youmelle, all chose not to return, which opened the door for some new people.
The club’s annual fall meeting was held at the clubhouse on Sunday, October 30.
Moving up from the second vice president’s chair, to take over as the club’s president was Jason Broad. Barry Henderson was elected 1st vice president and Mick Mabo got the nod as 2nd vice president.
Longtime treasurer, Sean Boulerice was returned, and Candy Jamieson was elected secretary to replace Alice McNairn who retired her position after 17 years.
Shawn Hummel was elected to replace Youmelle as greens chair.
Elected as club captain was Bob Mann. Lori-Anne Davies was returned as ladies captain by the ladies section of the club earlier this fall as was Lawrence Larocque as the senior’s representative.
Although the club has been battling decreases in the membership for the past two or three years, the membership decided, that with the economic climate as it is, an increase in the membership fees for the 2012 season would not be a good idea.
A reduced fee initiative for new members this past year, was successful in attracting 28 new members and it was suggested that it be run again next year.
