George was a league secretary for many years at Fair Lanes Palm

took office the association was in financial trouble. When he resigned,
due to health reasons in 2012, he had the association in a strong
fiscal position. After serving as secretary he remained on the board
as a director for 2 more years.
Many of us will remember George's smiling face as he greeted us
at the annual county tournaments.
