Members have voted for Michelle Booth to be awarded Life Memberships to the South Sydney Members Rugby League Football Club (Member Co.) at today’s (Sunday’s) Annual General Meeting at Redfern Town Hall.
Michelle said that she was “humbled, honoured & deeply moved” at her awarding of the highest of Club honours. Michelle became a committee member of the Burrow in 2003 as it gained its own constitution, and has played an important role as both activist & role model for all Members and fans of the Club. The Burrow has played a central role in rise of the Club, in no small part to the work of Michelle.
Member Co. board member Mr Nick Hatzistergos paid tribute to Michelle noting that she does “Much of work that should be recognised but rarely is”.
Michelle’s admission was received in unanimity & with resounding support from the gathered Members.
The meeting concluded with all other motions successfully passed, and the re-election of the existing board of directors.
