MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT APRIL '17
Celtic Club Annual Report 2015-2016
Celtic Club Sale News
The Special General Meeting on the proposed sale was held last evening. After a long night with 344 votes cast, you as members have decided to support the sale of our current Club premises to Beulah International.
There were 274 votes for the sale; 68 votes against, and 2 informal.
After a long and sometimes emotional journey to get to this stage, I would like to thank all members for their patience and support in reaching this resolution. In particular, I would like to pay tribute to the work of past Presidents and the Members of the previous Committees of Management. I will also take this opportunity to specially acknowledge the contribution of Francie Collins who worked tirelessly on behalf of our Club in the early stages of our sale/redevelopment project.
It is now time to focus on the opportunities we have to rebuild our Club. It will be a Club, which can support and promote our Irish and Irish Australian culture and traditions in Melbourne and Victoria.
Your feedback, ideas and avid support are needed and welcome as we move to the next stage of the project.
The Committee of Management looks forward to working with you. We are energised by the trust you have shown in our capacity to achieve great things for the Celtic Club and its members.
Brian Shanahan O.A.M
