Age proves no barrier to enjoyment Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A WOMAN who has been a part of Melbourne’s growth and prosperity for more than 100 years celebrated her 108th birthday last week. Marjorie Andrew, a resident at Benton’s Lodge, Mornington, was born at Moonee Ponds on 15 January 1913. Speaking to The News last week she said: “I grew up in Mordialloc, attended Mordialloc Primary School and finished my Leaving Certificate at night school. “My first job was as a clerk with the State Electricity Commission, first in Flinders Street and then Cheltenham.” After marrying Cyril “Bruce” Andrew at Mordialloc’s St Nicholas Church in May 1939, Ms Andrew faced the prospect of losing her husband when WWII broke out just four months later. “He was away for five long years and the world changed in the meantime,” she said. Looking back on those chilling times, Ms Andrew said part of the war effort for women who stayed at home was to work in the munitions factories, drive ambulances and staff cars, learn field nursing and first-aid, and to fill other positions traditionally held by men. “So, I learnt to drive, got my licence and drove management around, as well as defence force officers,” she said. “I joined the Red Cross and was a volunteer for 70 years. “In those days it was very much frowned upon for a woman to be

“I like to try new things and, even though I am getting on in years, if the body and mind allows, I will continue participating,” she said. “I can still get on the bus to go out for lunch with fellow residents, and enjoy a variety of activities, such as music, trivia, Happy Hour and 10-pin bowling.”

THE Frankston Dolphins Football Club has a new president. Board member David Friend has been appointed to the role. He takes over from club-champion Peter Geddes, who finished up in December. Mr Geddes oversaw the club during a period of renewed optimism for the Dolphins. He was part of the team that worked to reinstate the club to the VFL after it was booted out of the competition in 2016, and took over as president in 2017. In 2020 the club announced that it was able to pay off its debt after going into voluntary administration in August 2016 owing about $1.5 million. Mr Friend was announced as the club’s new president on 6 January. He said that “it’s an honour to be appointed the president of the Frankston Football Club. I am excited to be able to work with everyone at the club to help shape and drive its future.” “My goal is to lead, inspire, and support the club in every way I can, to be successful in all its endeavors, including delivering consistently competitive football teams. It’s also important to me to ensure the Frankston Football Club becomes financially strong, a progressive and innovative model club that embraces the community.” CEO Adrian Lloyd said “David’s experience over many years in working with AFL/VFL, NRL and A-League clubs will hold him in good stead in leading the Frankston Football Club.” “He is a very organised leader who will ensure that each area of the club is accountable through each club director.”
