Garry Donoghue making his Profile Presentation to the Club
The speaker for the evening was our own Garry Donoghue.
It is very clear that Garry has had an interesting career in the retail industry being involved in senior executive positions in a range of large corporations including Coles Myers, K Mart, Progressive Enterprises and Paper Plus. 
In his corporate life, while the work was complex and he needed to be very skilled in his strategic thinking and planning, there were also some very good highlights or “perks” such as swanning around the country side and across the Tasman in a private corporate jet. 
During his presentation he quipped that he has struck it lucky twice in his life, once when he missed the ballot for the draft in Australia and the second and most important when he met Helen, with this latter comment the meeting agreed most heartily!! 
After retirement Garry and Helen looked for more adventure and spent 3 years in a Camper Van travelling around Australia and New Zealand visiting all sorts of interesting places on the way. He even wrote a book which was published, and while it didn’t make the best seller list full marks must go to Garry for such an achievement. 
At age 70 when many of us are deciding if we can be bothered going for stroll around the block, Garry planned 7 Marathons completing them all!! 

Another amazing achievement. All of which were acknowledged by David Teape in his thank you to Garry on our behalf, along with the very valuable contribution to our club Garry has made over a number of years.
