Annual Rowing Season Launch- Momentous Occasion
On Sunday 14 October, the annual Rowing Season Launch took place at Banks Rowing Club. The community gathered with over 25 parent and daughter crews rowing along the Yarra before we celebrated our special guests with the naming of four new boats.
It was an honour to name these boats after significant members of our Loreto Toorak Rowing community, with a traditional boat blessing:
Kerri Price – former President & Committee member of the Loreto Toorak Rowing Committee (2013-2016)
Rhiannon McGee – former Patron of Rowing (six seasons)
Martin Francis – former Head of Rowing (seven season)
Maryanne Trumble, on behalf of Sr Deirdre Rofe – former Principal of Loreto Toorak (1979-1988)
A sincere thank you to all 172 athletes and families including the 2019 Blazer Squad, committee and leadership team for ensuring the morning was a joyous and momentous occasion.
Row Loreto Row!
