The Boronia Hawks community can feel very proud of our annual Xmas contributions to KNOX INFOLINK. We thank them now for their kind recognition of our efforts to support them in 2023.

Pease take a moment to read the letter of thanks to our Senior Secretary, Grant Bertram, and Auskick Co-ordinator, Samantha Dunkinson, who were closely involved in our Xmas drive for donated foodstuffs and gifts for the local community.

A Xmas Message from Flash

This year has been most memorable indeed. Two Senior Premierships are feats most clubs can only dream about! At ‘The Hawka’, we do dream, we dream big, but we then do!

Thank you to the magnificent players who donned the Hawka jumper in 2023. You all made us proud! Thank you to the coaches, trainers, and tireless volunteers who work behind the scenes to enable our club to function effectively, and thank you to our supporters who turn up week in and week out cheering loudly and giving our players the 5% extra support over the opposition which can at times win us matches.

I had the pleasure recently of spending a weekend away with some lifelong Boronia mates talking about just how fortunate we have all been to have been associated and connected with our club. We were all grateful for the friendships and experiences we have all shared together, some good, some not so good but we still enjoy a catch-up after 40 years!! This is what our club can offer, does offer, and will continue to offer!!

We will continue in the off-season to enhance our playing lists, plan the intricate design details of the new pavilion, and detail our social calendars for season 2024!

Once again, enjoy your well-deserved break and we’ll see you all next season! Wishing you all a safe and Happy Xmas!!!

A Xmas Message from Flash!

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.

For those attending Wednesday night’s final all-club training session, please remember to bring some food and a new toy for a donation to our local community in need. Please click here for more information.

A Christmas Message from Flash

To all players, volunteers, supporters and officials

On behalf of the senior committee, I’d like to wish everyone a restful and enjoyable summer break. Our club, like all clubs, has survived two extraordinary years that we could never plan for. Our club is in a great place thanks to the tireless work of our Board, Committees, Coaches and a loyal and dedicated playing group.

My New Year’s wish is for an uninterrupted season, we all deserve that! Surely that’s not too aspirational!!!!! I feel so sorry for the teams that had premiership hopes for this season. It is what it is but it’s still shattering for our coaches and players!

The behind the scenes work our coaches have done to ensure the well being of our players will never be fully realised, but I know what they have done and greatly appreciate their incredible efforts in keeping our players healthy. We are truly blessed to have the quality of coaches we do have in both football programs and our club is just so grateful for your work, kindness and dedication.

Our football managers in Karen, Ash and Wrighty don’t stop. We are always working at improving our lists and we are quietly confident that our lists for 2022 will be strong and be able to compete in what is looking like really even and competitive divisions for our male and female teams.

The senior club is already busy planning for events such as our first Presidents Luncheon. David “The Ox” Schwartz is our first speaker, with Luckmans Catering already locked in! Our Corporate Golf Day at the magnificent Eastwood Golf Club is being managed by Hollywood, and Leanne Rech is project managing our 90th Birthday Celebration Dinner which promises to be huge! Phil, Sammi, Wayne and Grant did a great job with our Christmas Fun Run and Nath Allen is planning a huge season of incredible social events!!!

A special thank you to Bomma and Leanne for managing our highly successful Hawks Nest Coterie. The work you do in building a cohesive community of past players and supporters is difficult to measure, but it is massive!!!!

Our incredible grants team led by Kerryn Westcott has secured a number of grants that will pay for things such as a new bain marie, new ice machine, iPads and a new fridge freezer. We also have nets being installed behind the goals at the club house end of the ground over summer.

We cannot run a club the size of Boronia without our dedicated volunteers. I sincerely thank you all. You are the lifeblood of our club and you are all the very best of people! If you are thinking of getting on board to help out, just ask and we will welcome you with open arms! We know we have to share the load and we are delegating more tasks than ever before as we can’t afford to burn out good people!

All in all, the club is in a good place. We have solid and meaningful direction across all leadership groups from Coterie to Playing Leadership Groups to Coaches to Committees to the Board. I wish all volunteers, all players and supporters a great Christmas and I’ll see you back down at the club in the new year.

Greg “Flash” Hannon, Senior President

Thank You Everyone for our Christmas Fun Run!

A big thank you to everyone who joined in the Christmas Spirit on Sunday.

An especially big thank you to all the volunteers who put so much work in to the event, particularly Phil Vanderdrift and Grant Bertram. Thank you to our special guests Santa and Jackson Taylor MP and to our photographers Grant Bertram and Sam Dunkinson.

Thank you also to, McDonald’s and G.J. Gardner Homes Australia.

Most of all, thank you to our Hawka community who were very generous with the amount of gifts and food to be donated to the less fortunate through Knox Infolink.
