President's Message

Members had a fun night last week and had the opportunity to listen to the district update from District Governor Ron Payne. Ron also attended an informal Board gathering prior to the meeting, where all directors gave an informative and confident summary of their committee's actions. After that presentation and meeting members throughout the night, Ron concluded “you guys have got your act together”.

Don’t miss out on the presentation from Lenny, the bad-ass undercover cop this coming Tuesday 29th.

The bad, the sad and the mad. Life as an Undercover Cop and Other Stories
The bad, the sad and the mad. Life as an Undercover Cop and Other Stories

In a police career spanning two decades, Lachlan McCulloch was commended for bravery, exposed police corruption, tracked heavy drug gangs and went deep undercover to infiltrate Australia's most dangerous crime family. But his best years in the job were spent on the street dealing with the bad, the sad and the mad. “Lenny Rogers” was a slimy, long haired, bad-ass drug dealing crime figure who infiltrated the infamous Pettingill family ultimately leading to their downfall. Get something wrong and you’re dead was Lachlan’s life for these wild years.

A family man throughout, now a grandfather, avid fisherman, Lachlan is still chasing wrongdoing but in the much safer environment.
