A Small Appreciation Post First

This was meant to go out a few weeks ago but got lost in transmission so I do apologise.
With all the devastation of the fires that have been burning our country as of late, we wanted to give a ‘shout out’ to one of our very own.
For those that aren’t aware, ‘Norm Coleman’ (pictured above) has been very busy as of late, out fighting the bushfires that have been ravaging Australia this summer.
Malvern Lacrosse would like to acknowledge Norm and anyone else that has given their time to help communities that have been affected or even wiped out as a result of these fires..
Thanks Norm!!
