The club was greatly saddened today (18 Feb, 2019) to learn of the passing of Margaret Keen, the delightful wife of Kevin and the much adored mother of Lance and Simon and their families. During Simon and Lance’s time with the club Margaret is remembered as a fabulous supporter and worker and although very quiet and reserved she had a very sharp and sometimes wicked sense of humour that made her much loved and admired by all Bulldogs. We offer Kevin, Lance and Simon our deepest sympathies and support. Margaret’s funeral will be held next Monday 25th February 2019 at Pinegrove Memorial Park at 10am.
