Drysdale RSL Awards

On Friday 13th April, 2018, Pam Davis and Colleen Lincoln of the Drysdale R.S.L. Women’s Auxiliary and Sub-Branch were awarded the National Certificate of Merit with Gold Badge for their untiring and dedicated service to the local R.S.L. Pam joined the Drysdale R.S.L. Women’s Auxiliary in April 1967 and has held office for 45 of her 50 years of membership. She held the positions of President for 2 years, Assistant Secretary for 11 years and Secretary for 32 years (and is still currently serving in this role). Pam was awarded Life Membership of the Auxiliary in 1998. In February 2009, Pam joined the Drysdale R.S.L. Sub-Branch as an affiliate member and by 2010 had volunteered to take on the position of Welfare and Appeals Officer for the club. She is still currently serving in this role. Her dedication to the Women’s Auxiliary and the Sub-Branch along with her welfare work within the R.S.L. is testament to her compassion, loyalty and commitment to the R.S.L. and its members. The R.S.L. is not the only organisation that Pam volunteers for. She has also spent many hours volunteering at the Drysdale Football Club (and is a Life Member here, also). Thanks to Pam’s efforts, the football club received ANZAC Football jumpers in 2017 for the ANZAC Day match. Amazingly, Pam also volunteered with Meals on Wheels for 15 years and is also a member of the Bellarine Uncle Bob’s Club. Colleen joined the Drysdale R.S.L. Women’s Auxiliary in February 1972 and has held the position of Treasurer for 36 years (and is still currently serving in this role) and Assistant Treasurer for 6 years. Colleen was awarded Life Membership of the Auxiliary in 2002. In February 2009, Colleen joined the Drysdale R.S.L. Sub-Branch as an affiliate member and has served as a Committee Member and is still serving in the role. She is a respected, dedicated and trustworthy member of the Drysdale R.S.L. Women’s Auxiliary and Sub-Branch. Colleen is well known throughout the community for making fruit cakes and puddings. Over the years, she has very generously donated fruit cakes and puddings to many local clubs and charities to raffle, to assist them with their fundraising efforts. Colleen grew up in Drysdale and her family have always been involved in the Drysdale R.S.L. with her Mum, Bub Noy, also a Life Member of the Auxiliary. Pam and Colleen are truly worthy recipients of this Award and are exceptionally inspiring women. Congratulations on receiving one of the organisation’s highest honours in recognition of your devoted services within our community
