Volunteer: A person who voluntarily offers him or herself for a service or undertaking. A person who performs a service willingly and without pay.
Yes the Volunteer is the life blood of a local football club. At West’s we are blessed with some fantastic people that give so much of their time freely and without too much complaint!
This month we want to recognise the fabulous contribution of Marylene Curcio, whose official committee title is Assistant Treasurer- Football, a position she has held since 2012 - But Mez is much more than that.
A mother of two budding football superstars, she has her official title, but you can also throw in merchandise manager, Chef for Thursday nights delicious meals (if you’ve not sampled the cooking yet, get down on a Thursday night) and Team Manager for the under 19’s. You’ll also find her behind the canteen on match days and functions. She’s also been seen wearing the Medics vest on occasions as well as helping organise social functions and just about any other odds and ends jobs that need doing around the place.
That’s a full time job on its own! Yet she still manages to fit in a paid full time job as well.
So from a grateful football club, we say thank you for all your time and commitment to the Red, White and Blue, not for glory and fame, but for the love of the Club.
We salute you.
