The Jack Donnelly Award

Jack Donnelly

Sadly in 2007 we lost a dear friend and member of the society, Jack Donnelly. Jack was well-loved and will be sadly missed.

In his younger days Jack was a professional dancer and choreographer. He choreographed and appeared in several shows with the society over the years.

In memory of Jack, the General Committee have decided to present an annual award to a member in recognition of his/her services to the society. This award will be presented annually at either the B.O.S. dinner dance or the society AGM.

Members are asked to nominate a person who they feel is a worthy recipient. The nominee does not have to be a performing member, but may be anyone who has contributed to the society in whatever capacity. Voting slips will be available at rehearsals a month prior to the presentation.

The award for 2014 was presented to Gill Corcoran by Debbie Harrison, Chairman at our 55th Anniversary Masquerade Ball in March 2014.
