leader
By Kate Taylor

For the first time in its 98-year history, the Bacchus Marsh RSL has a female
president.
Cherrison Lawton took the reins on Mach 10 – just six weeks before the
league’s biggest event of the year, ANZAC Day.
And while the job is a big responsibility, Cherrison is not daunted by it.
“I’ve got that sense of convergence about it, it’s being in the right place at
the right time,” she explained.
“I find it quite exciting, but I am also very aware of the responsibility,
and I am also very aware of the absolute honour and privilege that the
community have given me.”
Cherrison’s husband is a long-time member of the RSL in Melbourne, with
Cherrison having joined the Bacchus Marsh branch in 2013 after moving to
the town in 2011.
“The people of Bacchus Marsh have welcomed us, they’ve taken us into
their community, it’s beautiful, we love living in Bacchus Marsh.”
Cherrison had already been serving with the club as a welfare officer – but
she does indeed have family roots in the service.
“I am a third generation servicewoman, my history is my grandfathers
and great uncles, my father and uncle all served - I have got history in the
services.”
Settling into the role of president is set to be an easy transition, with the
help of a strong team.
“It’s team work. The secretary and the treasurer are a fantastic team holding
up the executive – I must add that I make a lousy secretary.”
And the team before her wasn’t half bad, either.
“I must admit, the men have done a noble task of carrying this RSL for 98
years.”
The current lot are looking pretty good too – and one of Cherrison’s plans
for the future includes increasing the numbers.
“The fellas are all really encouraging, we’ve got a fantastic group of men.
“As far as my role, it is to look after our senior veterans and promote the
opportunities of Bacchus Marsh RSL to reach the younger veterans, from
the later campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq, that are here in the Bacchus
Marsh region, and I’d encourage them to contact the RSL.”
But in the meantime, it’s all about that upcoming event.
“First and foremost, we want to do the march on Sunday 23 April, the march
for ANZAC Day, leaving at 2 o’clock from the hospital and going down
Grant St, along Main St, and ending up next to the RSL hall, followed by

Avenue Bowling Club
Preliminary Final
Kilmore Cup Night
Avenue’s sole surviving finals team, Division 5 travelled to
Saturday 9 July
Victoria BC to face Webbcona in the penultimate game of the
season, a knock-out Preliminary Final.
Avenue, qualified for this game despite a big loss to Central
Wendouree last week, but were able to survive in the race for
the flag, thanks to the double chance it earned after finishing
top of the ladder at the end of the Home and Away season.
With five changes to last week’s side, Avenue started well
in three of the four rinks to establish an overall two shot
lead by afternoon tea. Ray Humphrey’s rink led the way by
picking up 17 shots either side of the break, to establish a
commanding lead which they did not surrender, eventually
running out 20 shot winners. Di Hardiment’s rink was one
shot ahead of their opposition at the break, but picked up
valuable shots upon resumption (including six shots on
one end) to take control of the game and ending up with an
9-shot win.
Stewart Wilson’s rink had a battle befitting a final, with scores
being close all day. They were able to pick up four shots in
the last three ends to win by five shots. Unfortunately, Peter
Kay’s rink faced arguably the opposition’s strongest rink and
were playing catch-up bowls particularly after the tea break,
before going down by 16 shots.
Nonetheless the 17-shot win provides Avenue with the
opportunity for a re-match with their second semi-final
conquerors Central Wendouree in this week’s Grand Final.
Taryn McMinn sets a new Triple Jump record. Final score – Avenue 101 def Webbcona 84.

Ballan went into the game with only

Despite that all bowler’s put in a great
effort to restrict Mt Clear to 218 with
a good contribution by all, only to
