Legacy welcomes new president

THE presidency of the South Gippsland Legacy Group was officially handed over to Peter Fraser at the 65th annual meeting on Sunday.

Outgoing president Alex Moon served in the position for two years and described it as a wonderful and humbling experience.

Mr Fraser is the first returned veteran to become a Legacy president in 10 years.

He enlisted in 1965 and built his army resume from there, including service in Vietnam.

For the past four years he has been a Legatee in the South Gippsland Legacy Group.

Around 80 guests were seated at the Leongatha RSL on Sunday for the induction of Mr Fraser, the annual meeting and the luncheon.

Secretary Sue Loughridge said this was the largest number of guests Legacy has seen in some time.

Ms Loughridge said Legacy will continue to be quiet achievers in 2015. Their honourable fundraising efforts reach from Phillip Island to Yanakie.

“We already have two film nights and a concert for the ladies planned this year,” she said.

“These events will happen over the next six months.”

Mr Alex Moon said he enjoyed his term as president and it was made a lot easier because of the support from all the Legatees within the group.
