At our Christmas party during December, we had 3 board member’s terms expire. One board member was re-elected and we also have 2 new incoming board members. The St. Louis Gaelic Athletic Club wants to thank Beth O’Malley who was our recent Registrar, and also to Grant Gorman for being the first ever Public Relations officer. In their place, Mike Reynolds was elected to the vacant Public Relations Officer, and Ken Dandridge was elected to the Registrar position. Landon Zirkelbach was also re-elected to Gaelic Football trainer.
Please congratulate new board members when you see them, and thank the old ones!
Hurling season is right around the corner, so be on the lookout for announcements!Posted in STLGAC | 1 Comment November 7, 2013
