Dear ELAC members,
I am thrilled to announce that at the 2013 Little Athletics Victoria AGM, Carol Timmins was awarded the highest individual honour, being invested as a Life Governor of LAVic.

Carol was presented with a plaque and pin in recognition of the award at the LAVic Gala Dinner.

It was noted that Carol had provided incredible amounts of time, volunteering at Team (Royal Ascot), Centre (Essendon), Region (Northern Metropolitan) and Victorian levels.

Over the period, Carol has fulfilled many roles and been instrumental in initiating and modernising a lot of the systems that are currently used by Little Athletics.

We are of course incredibly proud of the work that Carol volunteers, both at Royal Ascot and at Essendon, and thoroughly congratulate Carol on this lifetime achievement.

Carol now of course joins her very proud mother Gwen as Life Governors of LAVic.
Well done Carol and very well deserved,
Jamie Gray
President ELAC
