LUNCH TO SUPPORT JOHN TAFFT, KEN CHANDLER

Rutherglen's past players and associates are holding a light luncheon and get together for local football legends John Tafft and Ken (Changer) Chandler at Barkly Park on Sunday, November 23 from 11am to 1pm.

It will be chance for those who know John and Ken to say g'day and show your support as they meet the challenges of their illnesses.

They would appreciate a happy face at this time and if ladies could provide a plate of sandwiches that would be good.

There will be tea and coffee supplied and for those wishing for something stronger the bar will be opened at bar prices.

It shows that our club is doing everything possible to responsibly manage alcohol consumption. It means our percentage of alcohol revenue compared to other revenue streams has been reduced significantly. 

This has helped to improve the image of the club within the community and decrease the risk of liability. It also shows that the Cattery is a very family orientated club.
