Dear friends and friends I am yet to meet,
Over the last month I have learned more about mental health than I have in
the rest of my life. I have been incredibly surprised by the numbers of people and the age groups most affected. It shouldn’t have been surprising as I have also experienced anxiousness and depression. Although I was unaware of the name for those feelings at the time. I have developed strategies to help keep those feelings under control although occasionally they have had the upper hand for a period. Maybe that is where my preoccupation with asking people Are you
happy? began. <<


Drysdale Football Club 140 Year Celebration

In 1900 The Bellarine Football Competition was formed with games previous to that being by invitation only. Drysdale, Portarlington, & Queenscliff were the inaugural teams with Military joining some years later. The clubs first premiership came in 1903 with an impressive marble clock being awarded to the victors. The clock can still be seen in the clubrooms today.

Move forward to 2019 and the club has 500 active participants, from 5 year olds in Auskick, to Men’s and Women’s senior teams. It has won 18 senior premierships and holds a place as one of the most respected sports clubs in the region.

To celebrate the 140 year milestone the club is holding a spectacular commemorative dinner at the Geelong Football club on Saturday June 22nd. With a two course dinner, entertainment from musicians and comedians, as well as visual displays and interviews with past players it is a night not to be missed. Tickets are available at the club or via their website
