An eagle
soars
By Helen Tatchell

It all began at grassroots level and from that grounding Moorabool


now has a 2018 AFL Premiership player on the Honour Board.
Liam Duggan was picked up by the West Coast Eagles in the 2014
National Draft and has now notched up close to 70-games and
was part of the winning Premiership team against Collingwood
at the MCG last Saturday, wearing the #14 guernsey.
Duggan told Footy WA on Sunday after the big game it was still
pretty surreal and it “hadn’t quite sunk in yet.”
“I have this medal on and I am not taking it off,” he said.
And how did he pull up, body wise, after the game?
“The body is pretty sore, I am feeling it today.”
Duggan was a solid contributor throughout the match and
played an important role, taking a very courageous mark in front
of the seven-foot Collingwood ruckman, American Mason Cox in
the second quarter, one of the highlights of the game.
From Myrniong, Duggan now approaching just 22-years of age
started his football career at Bacchus Marsh. He was a member
of the Bacchus Marsh BFL Under 16.5 Senior premiership side in
2011 and recruited to the Western Jets after completing his junior
football with the Cobras.
Duggan has had a number of junior football achievements that
include winning the Herald Sun Shield with St Patrick’s College
(Ballarat), named in the Vic Metro National Under 18 team and
in 2014 was awarded the Ben Mitchell Medal at the AIS-AFL
Academy. Last year (2017) at the West Coast Eagles Presentation
Night Liam was awarded the Rookie of the Year medal; that same
year he received two-votes at the Brownlow medal count after
an outstanding performance against the Fremantle Dockers in
Round 17, with over 30-possessions.
Bacchus Marsh FNC President Adam Sutherland said Duggan is
a polite friendly guy who has time for everyone.
“He is a natural leader,” Sutherland said.
“From an early age Liam was winning B&Fs and then played in a
number of state teams, so yes he was always seen to be a definite
chance of AFL.”
And what did Sutherland observe as Duggan’s stand out talents
as a junior?
“Liam’s class and poise combined with his ‘team first’ attitude
were his strong suites,” Sutherland said.
And the club was very excited on him being part of the winning
team.
“We as a club were rapt for Liam as he has worked super hard to
get where he is and know how much achieving that flag with the
Eagles would mean to him, and his countless mates at the club.
We’re overjoyed for him,” Sutherland said.
“It is great both Nick (Suban) and Liam have achieved their
absolute dream of playing in an AFL grand final and we as a club
couldn’t be prouder.”

Poppies for the animals


By Carol Saffer

Tilly Campey, 10-years-old, hand-made and sold 73 red felt


poppies for Anzac Day this year, raising money for the Ballan RSL.
Tilly’s target for the upcoming Remembrance Day on 11
November is 100 purple poppies, commemorating all animal
deeds and sacrifices in war.
“I just thought it would be a nice thing to honour the animals as
well as the humans,” says Tilly.
From the horses who carried soldiers in the Boer War, to Simpson
and his donkey, and to explosive detection dogs serving in
Afghanistan animals have played their part in combat.
Ballan RSL, in partnership with the Ballan and District branch of
the CWA, put a call out for knitted, crocheted or crafted poppies
for an installation to cascade down the front of the Ballan Post
Office behind the cenotaph on Inglis Street for Remembrance Day.
Tilly can’t knit so hand-crafting purple felt poppies will be her
personal contribution.
The Bacchus Marsh Grammar student plans on making poppies
“mostly on the weekend and during the school holidays or after
school on Monday and Tuesdays,” saying these are her only two
free nights.
In her rare spare time Tilly is an avid reader, citing J K Rowling
and Roald Dahl as favourite authors, a writer of stories and enjoys
swimming and dancing.
She will give some of her purple poppies to the CWA for the
installation while selling the remainder, to raise money for the Tilly Campey with some
Ballan RSL, at the October and November Ballan Farmers’ Market of the purple poppies
and in front of the Ballan RSL building on Remembrance Day. she is making to raise
awareness and funds for
If the CWA callout results in receiving an abundance of poppies, the Ballan RSL.
Tilly thinks perhaps an installation at Ballan District Health and Photo – Helen Tatchell
Care or the Lions Club Op-shop could be erected.

Positive ageing online


A need for increased communication opportunities for older residents of Moorabool has led
to the creation of a new Facebook page.
The ‘Positive Ageing Moorabool’ Facebook page has been developed for older residents,
aimed at helping them be informed and connect to events and activities within Moorabool.
The page follows a recent survey and workshop for Moorabool Shire Council’s ‘Age
Friendliness project’, which highlighted the need for a greater communication and online
presence that caters to older residents, to increase participation and reduce isolation.
The page follows upcoming technology literacy opportunities from Council, which are
targeted specifically for older residents to increase confidence in using computers and other
devices.
For those already online, the ‘Positive Ageing Moorabool’ Facebook page is now live and
ready to follow and share with others.
