Senior Men's & Women's Football and Netball, Junior Boys & Girls Football, Auskick and over 35's Veterans and Masters Football. Affiliated with EFNL. We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land in Boronia.
The BHFNC sends our heartfelt sympathy to Simone Cramond (nee Stubley) who lost her much-loved brother Phill this week, far too soon. Our thoughts are with you and your family during this incredibly challenging time Simone.
The BHFNC sends its sincere condolences to our senior committee member, Phil Vanderdrift on the passing of his much-loved mother Val. Val is now dementia free and at peace. Our club wishes Phil, his wife Pezz, and all his family much love and support during this difficult time.
This weekend we will celebrate NAIDOC week across all of our senior and junior games. This is a chance for us to recognise the culture and history of the beautiful land that we play our great sport on and to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – in particular those of the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people of the Kulin nation, who are the traditional owners of the land where Tormore resides.
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year and is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.
A very big thank you to Indigenous club member Chloe for her Acknowledgement of Country before each of the games; and to Samantha Dunkinson for arranging and leading each ceremony.
Today we remember the life of Monique Lezsak, whose life was tragically cut short 2 weeks ago. Monique was the much loved cousin of Boronia Hawks player and coach Stacey Peril.
Monique was the mother of 10-year old twins, she enjoyed bodybuilding, wanted to become a Police officer and had a huge amount of life in front of her. Our Women’s Squad wore white arm bands during their most recent games in memory of Monique, in support of Stacey and as a way to raise awareness of domestic and family violence.
So this is an exciting moment. With funding now in the budget that means we can move a step closer to delivering the facilities these legends and the broader community deserve.
$1 million will go towards delivering the new pavilion and $200,000 will go to helping the clubs fit-out the rooms – which means a lot of the stress that usually comes with a new home.
It’s no secret. I’m a massive supporter of grassroots sports and unashamedly so. I believe in it’s power to change lives.
And with these new facilities – it’ll make that job even easier and encourage more people to get involved, particularly girls and women who maybe couldn’t have due to the dated facilities not being fit for purpose.
This will change all that. Now, let’s get on with it!
It’s safe to say that most of us have known someone affected by breast cancer directly or indirectly. We wear pink with pride and our thoughts are with all those impacted by this illness.
We chose to wear pink a week later than most so we could come together with most of our teams playing at home. We’ll also have some teams wearing pink again next week for an extra show of support when our Vets & Masters play.
A great crowd for our last training session for 2022! Thank you very much to everyone who turned out tonight and donated to support Knox Infolink Inc in their ‘Share the Joy’ Knox Christmas Appeal. GO HAWKA!!!
To all players and supporters of the BHFNC, on behalf of the senior committee, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Our club is well-placed to attack the 2023 season with confidence. Thanks to our coaching staff, coterie group, and the work of our many volunteers over the finals campaign, our energies are clearly focused on making 2023 a season our club won’t forget in a hurry.
As the year progresses, we expect to be able to update you all on a regular basis on the progress of our new pavilion. This pavilion will be the benchmark for clubs in the Eastern Suburbs. Such an exciting time to be associated with our club!
So rest up, stay fit if you are a player, stay safe and I look forward to welcoming you all back to pre-season training in the new year.
