Anzacs remembered at The Cougar Den
In attendance was Ian Butcher, the President of the Bentleigh RSL, who are proud sponsors of the McKinnon Basketball Association. World War II Veterans Mr Pat Leydon and Mrs Edith Stakelum were also guests of the service, as well as RSL member Miss Jenni Lee. The captains of the Under 18 boys and girls Cougar Representative Teams carried the Australian flag during a moving service led by Ian Butcher. Cougars’ Head Coach Matt Brooks believed it was important for the family-orientated club to remember those who have served as “it is important to commemorate Australia’s proud history and recognise those things bigger than the game of basketball”.
