  • Racing this Week

Ian Morton

Jeff Culnane Funeral

ACT Vets turned out last Wednesday to honour long-time member Jeff Culnane.

Members formed up to lead a procession of the hearse to the grave site. Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions, members were unable to participate in the service.

The Culnane family were thrilled with the honour guard and would like to thank all members who took part.

And a big thank you from me.

Mike Hayes
