Alan Polaschek

Our dear Patron, Alan Polaschek, passed away at Rannerdale War Veterans Home on on Friday, April 30, 2021. We have been so fortunate to have enjoyed Alan's humour and support of our club's activities over the years and as our dedicated club Patron. Alan would have turned 88 in a few days so a good innings considering his battles with his health over recent times and the passing of his dear Patricia recently. The funeral service for Alan Polaschek was held on Friday 7th May at the Transitional Cathedral Christchurch City corner of Madras Street & Hereford Street.

The September club magazine has been placed in the members section of this website.
