It is rare that anybody would provide 50 years of voluntary work for a community organisation. So it has been for Bruce Eastick, with Gawler Community Retirement Homes (GCRH). Through the 50 years of the organisation, Bruce was a much-respected Chairman for all but two of those years. Stepping down in 2017, while remaining on the Board.
Bruce spoke at the organisations recent Anniversary Function and reminisced on the early days, that lead to the formation of what would become Gawler & District Aged Cottage Homes and now Gawler Community Retirement Homes.
The Anniversary Function, Gawler Community Retirement Homes (GCRH) was able to finalise its 50th Anniversary Book and launched it in December 2019. Former long-time Board Member, Humphrey George was on hand to officially release it. He was a strong supporter of the book and the need to document some of the history.
GCRH thanks Stan Roulston (a GCRH resident) for his efforts in compiling the book. He put in a lot of hours to ensure it all came together. The design of the book was done by David Ward, son of GCRH residents John & Judy Ward; he has produced a quality book. Thanks also, to Teresa Lane from Property Lane Images for new photos included.
