2019 AGM Wrap-up
Let’s call it a wrap
Thank you for supporting your Committee this year. We have appreciated the quiet moments with you and the messages and comments encouraging us along through the year – they make the difference and make us feel we are part of something special here at Ormond.
We have emphasised our club values at every turn and have done our best to live them along-side you all. We have focussed our efforts on developing all our players and coaches and providing them with support along the way and a clear pathway to follow. Knowing your kids are happy, improving themselves and feel they belong and want to come back means the world to us.
