Jan, Ballarat

Jan was a founding member of Dragons Abreast Ballarat in 2005 and became President for 2009/10.

She was a driving force behind raffles, sausage sizzles, craft and book sales, fashion parade and many more activities to raise funds for a Dragon Boat for Ballarat.

Jan has made many friends from other Dragons Abreast teams both in regattas and especially Bendigo and Geelong who helped out for training when Ballarat had no water in Lake Wendouree.

In her Support Group she gave time to help other ladies diagnosed with cancer and had time to listen when they just wanted to talk.

It was a privilege to know her and a pleasure to paddle with her.

Paddles up Jan.
