(C) A message to you from Colleen
It is with great sadness that I resign formally from this wonderful caravan club. As you are aware John died of Leukaemia in early August and even though I haven’t sold the caravan I really can’t see myself continuing to travel alone. I will miss the friendships that we enjoyed since joining the club in 2005. We attended 33 rallies over the years in every State and Territory (except W.A. where we did attend a club lunch). It is truly an Australian wide club. When we joined the club we were absolute novices at caravanning and we learnt so much and received amazing help from our fellow club members.
Travel safely and continue to explore our great country and enjoy the friendship of the club.
VALE – MARLENE LINGHAM AUS 971
On the 20th August 2019, we lost our club member, committee member and good friend, Marlene, to liver cancer. Diagnosed in July this year, Marlene had been in good spirits and was coping well as late as the day before her sudden deterioration and hospitalisation on the day of her death.
Marlene and Russell joined the ATRVC in July 2014 and have been active club members, enjoying club events and rallies, and particularly last year’s National Rally at Proserpine. Marlene stepped in as Club Treasurer in March 2017 to fill the casual vacancy, and then was subsequently elected in her own right as Treasurer at the 2017 AGM. Marlene was ably supported by her husband Russell, as Assistant Treasurer, and together they efficiently and enthusiastically managed the club finances and all that treasury involved. Marlene was granted leave of absence from the Committee in July to allow her to focus her energy on her diagnosis and treatment.
Marlene was an avid golfer and was very involved in her golf club and enjoyed the friendships of her golfing team mates. Marlene and Russell also maintained close contact with ATRVC club members that lived locally and together the “Mount Team” organised a fabulous South Australian Rally at Port Macdonnell in March this year. Marlene and Russell were very proud to showcase their hometown during the Rally and organised a fabulous tag-a-long drive tour for fellow club members which was enjoyed by all on the day. Marlene shared her artistic talents generously. She contributed to the Club Brochure design and made certain that, on behalf of the Committee, illnesses, birthdays and special events involving club members were acknowledged with one of her “special designed” cards. Marlene’s contribution as a valued club member of the ATRVC will not be forgotten.
The Committee extends its heartfelt condolences and thoughts to Russell at this difficult time. We will all miss her.
