Peter Clohesy was elevated to Life Member during his funeral service on 26 November 2016.
Peter had been elected for confirmation at the 2017 reunion but God called him home prematurely.

At the 2016 Annual General Meeting Leo Law was posthumously elevated to Life Member.
The certificate was received by Faye and family members.
Pat Clohesy was also conferred with Life Membership.

On Monday 18 May 2015 a number of Committee members attended the Sundblom home. Old Boys from far afield joined the Kyneton contingent, and Sunny’s wife Jarleth and their family for the surprise!

So we add Kevin [Sunny] Sundblom to our Life Member honour roll.

At the 2014 annual general meeting Kath Ramsdale mother of a stalwart and now President Jack was made an Honorary Life Member. The award was to acknowledge her ongoing hosting of a monthly meeting and the award winning sponge cakes always provided.
