Australia Day honours for Mont pair
EVEN in the off-season Montmorency FNC people are still racking up honours. Mont senior women’s co-ordinator
and general committee member Gail Blythe (pictured below right) and netball manager chief Peter Gray picked
up Australia Day awards this year.
On January 26 at Viewbank Secondary College, federal MP Jenny Macklin presented both with official Australia
Day certificates for their service to the community.
Gail has been a major driving force in fostering and promoting women’s and girl’s footy at Mont over the last few
years. Peter has also been a significant mover and shaker with the Magpies’ netball teams. Club president Greg
Bowman praised the contributions of both award recipients. "They are fine examples of the community minded spirit
of this fine old club,'' Greg said.
