Golf Club draws on experience for its future
At its Annual General Meeting held recently, the Lusignan Golf Club elected a committee packed with experienced members, who it is hoped will guide the club out of its administrative rough of recent years.
The newly elected president is Hilbert Shields, who had enjoyed a well regarded two-year tenure previously. Also elected as Vice-President was another former President Brian Hackett, the experienced Esau Shamshudin as Assistant Secretary/Treasurer, and Brian Glasford as captain (a role he has performed previously).
Deanand Bissessar is the Grounds Superintendent; Treasurer is Anand Persaud; and William Walker, the Public Relations Officer. Guy Griffith has agreed to stay on for a few months as Secretary to help with the transition.
Shields thanked both the outgoing President Oncar Ramroop and the Secretary for the yeoman service they had given over their term. He also noted with some alarm how many members were not financially up to date, but encouraged all those interested in furthering the game to get involved by joining various sub-committees, which he plans to set up shortly.
