Volunteer Recognition Day 25/50 years of volunteer service

Volunteer Recognition Ceremony

The sound of cricket being played on Adelaide Oval provided a fitting background to the SACA Volunteer Recognition Ceremony held on Australia Day, where over 30 long serving volunteers from around the State where awarded SACA 25 year and Cricket Australia 50 year awards. Over 150 guests were welcomed by SACA President Andrew Sinclair, and they also enjoyed hearing from the SA Community Cricket Volunteer of the Year James Lang, with SACA General Manager Operations Shane Bernhardt updating the volunteers on new initiatives and the upcoming ICC World Cup.          

The awards were then presented with the SACA 25 Year's service to cricket medallions and Cricket Australia 50 year Service award announced for the following outstanding volunteers. To view pictures click here
