LIFE MEMBERS

The Monash Whites Football Club first awarded Life Membership at the end of 1987,
its nineteenth season.  There were five recipients of this honour in its first year
- Peter Brooker, Pat Cain, Colin Crampton, Doug Ellis and Keith Frearson -
and, with the exception of 1989, a single Life Membership was bestowed
every year until the end of 1995.
 
In 2008 the Whites' Committee recognised the importance of this honour and it
was re-established based on the attached criteria.  The Club recommenced the
awarding of Life Membership at the Reunion Match on the 5th of July, 2008.

Here we list some of the achievements and contributions of our Life Members.
