This mass was largely attended with his family, including 18 grandchildren, and general community members who admired Hugh for his contribution as President of Harbord Diggers and Chairman of the Board. He had an active interest in horseracing and its administration.
Hugh also arranged for us to use the Diggers boardroom for our meetings. Previously the Committee had held meetings at each of the Committee members’ homes on rotation. We commenced using the Diggers venue for our annual presentation dinners and other promotions.
We appreciate Hugh’s kindness and generosity to our Club.
