VALE GEORGE LENNE

The Club is saddened to hear of the passing of loyal servant George Lenne, at the age of 97. George played 21 games between 1941 and 1942, and in 1945 – his career being split by wartime service in the RAAF.

He maintained an involvement with the Club after his playing days were over as Secretary, Chairman of the Reserves and was a Board Member from 1970 to 1974. He was also awarded with Life Membership of the Club in 1964. 

George is survived by his wife Marj, who is one of the Club’s longest serving members - 74 years.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Marj and to the Lenne family.

A funeral service for George will be held on Friday 21 February at 1pm at the Uniting Church , 6 Murray Anderson Road, Rosebud.
