Apex hopes to ignite spirit
SIX hard working volunteers celebrated another great year of supporting the Rose City community at the weekend.
These mighty six will prepare to reinvent their image this chapter to try and regenerate the Apex spirit to gain more members from the community.
Neil Briscoe, who was re-elected as president, said although they were currently only a small club they had a strong group of volunteers who worked together.
“This year is all about rebuilding the club and of course we will be doing fundraising with that,” Mr Briscoe said.
“We are really pushing for rebuilding our membership back up to what it used to be.”
The new leading committee was introduced with David Balfour as vice-president, Tim Gallagher as secretary and Kay Webb as treasurer.
Mr Briscoe said Apex was a great organisation to be involved with where members can immerse themselves in a great community. “It’s a way to give back for what you get living in this great country and we support all organisations,” Mr Briscoe said.
For an organisation, which targets 18- to-35-year-olds, he said their big problem was a lack of younger members.
“We need the younger members to be there to carry the torch,” Mr Briscoe said. After 23 years of service Peter Hardwick was also recognised with life membership on the night.
