September 2, 1981: Legacy appreciated

December 20, 2017

Legacy week is approaching and one Shepparton  man who doesn't need reminding is Mr Pat O'Connell.

Mr O'Connell is one of Shepparton Legacy's most consistent donors and over the years has amassed a number of Legacy badges. 

Pat says his incentive to give to Legacy was sparked off by two of his friends.

Basil Curtain the first president of Legacy in 1949 and Max Gaylard who was president in 1956.

Pat has not missed a year, giving a donation since Legacy commenced in Shepparton and in 1969 he raised his yearly contribution to $52 (or $1 a week).

Mr O'Connell is pictured at right with the badges and after presenting this year's cheque to Legacy President, Mr Ian Robertson.
