Lorraine ‘Blossom’ McCormick is the first woman in the long history of the Brunswick Heads Bowling Club to receive the honour of being granted a life membership.
To get this award at a club with a 65-year history was definitely a ‘double honour’, Blossom said.
‘I just love my club’, she said.
Recently she has been the COVID-19 registrar for the club, working six days and three nights a week to keep everybody safe, but this is only the tip of the iceberg.
Over her 20 year association with the Club, Blossom worked as a secretary for eight years, helped organise scheduling and rosters, as well as playing social and competitive bowls.
Blossom was introduced to the Club 20 years ago when a friend invited her down from her home in Tyalgum for mufti bowls. ‘I just loved it,’ she said.
It is not the first time her efforts have been recognised; sixteen years ago the district president awarded her a merit badge and ‘That was quite a shock’, she said.
