Nearly 200 people turned out to help the Griffith Swans celebrate their presentation night earlier this month. While many awards were handed out over the night, none was more deserved that Michael Duncan, who was presented with his sixth Vic Hathaway medal for the club best and fairest. Duncan, who played his 200th game for the club this season, was also made a life member of the Griffith Swans.

Long-time club volunteer Bob Spears presented Duncan with his life membership badge and Duncan’s parents, George and Donna, were also made life members to acknowledge their volunteer work with the club over the years. A further surprise for George and Donna was the presentation of individual merit certificates and a plaque for 26 years service to the sport of Australian rules.

Special mention on the night was also made to Alex Blissett and Melanie Bortalazzo for their respective under 17s and C2 grade Riverina Football Netball League runners-up awards.
