Donny's Day- On Saturday we welcome Alexandra FNC and honour one of our greatest, if not the greatest life member of the Yea Football Netball Club, Donny McLeish. Donny sadly passed away last year and due to COVID-19, we weren't able to give him the send off he deserved. A premiership hero, a past president and a familiar face on the gate, Donny was a true legend of the club and is sorely missed.
Donny was a great role model for following generations. He stayed around the club after his playing days were over and gave back to ensure others were given the same opportunity he had to play for the Yea Tigers. During recent lean times on the football field, he was encouraging to the players and often on hand to offer suggestions to the committee. He also let the committee know when they were on the right track. Donny played for Yea in the 1940s and was a successful Premiership player in the 1945 season. He retired in 1948. He was President from 1968 to 1971, treasurer in 1977, Secretary in 1988 and a trainer for 20 years. He filled any position when needed. Many will remember Donny selling raffle tickets with his bag over his shoulder going from car to car, then walking around the ground at half time with the winning ticket number. Donny was also on the gate with Glen McMaster for many years. Donny was honoured with Life Membership in 1973. He was Best Clubman in 1974 and again in 1993. The Honour Board over the bar was donated by Don and his family in 1983. Donny will not be forgotten by the Yea Tigers and with the Netball Rooms named in honour of Don and his wife Mary, we will proudly tell future generations about this great man.

Thank you.

FYI, there is no DHHS anymore.... it’s now the Department of Health.

From Vic Department of Health:

"A full public health response is underway after an individual in Victoria tested positive to COVID-19.

The individual, a male in his 30s, recently returned to Australia from overseas and undertook Hotel Quarantine in South Australia.

He arrived in Victoria and returned to his home in Wollert on 4 May and developed symptoms on 8 May. He got tested yesterday, 10 May, and returned a positive result this morning.

Further testing has been urgently arranged to confirm the diagnosis. Until that time, the Department is treating this as a positive case and acting accordingly.

The individual is being interviewed and exposure sites are being verified. They will be published when they are confirmed.

The individual who was tested positive is isolating at home. His household primary close contacts are also isolating, being interviewed, and will be urgently tested.

The Department is working with interstate counterparts to determine the likely source of this infection.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 – such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, chills or sweats, or change in sense of smell or taste – get a test immediately.
