Lil Dickie, a life member of the Ballarat Greyhound Racing Club, sadly passed away on Monday morning at age 90.
Lil received life membership of the Club in recognition of significant service over many, many years on the Committee and helping out around the club. The Ballarat GRC’s Oaks race, held in February each year, is named after Lil, and most regular race meetings at Ballarat have a race named after her.
Lil used to train greyhounds, and she was awarded Greyhound Racing Victoria’s prestigious Ken Carr Medal in 2002, an award which recognises outstanding contribution to a greyhound club.
A service for Lil will be held in the F.W. Barnes & Son Chapel, corner Pleasant St. Sth and Darling St, Ballarat on Thursday 2 March, 2017 at 11:00am.
Guests will then be welcomed back to the Ballarat GRC for food and drinks.
