Don Forsyth (right) presenting Frank Fruedenstein with a token of appreciation on behalf of the Muster committee at the farewell dinner at the Happy Inn recently.Members of the Muster Committee gathered at the Happy Inn Restaurant last week to say thank you to Frank and Shirley Freudenstein for Franks tireless effort as committee member since its inception.
Frank volunteered himself from the beginning and has been a staunched supporter all the way, helping in the early days with roll calls, camp oven cooking on the last night, counting the riders out and most importantly on their returned.
His presence around the showground when the riders were out during the day was also reassuring to them that everything was safe back at camp.
Frank put together a good raffle each year and always donated some of his beautiful leatherwork to go with it and then hours making sure the tickets sold well.
Frank was also the Vice President of the committee and very ably stood in when Don Forsyth was struck down with illness.
Most will remember Frank for his big voice echoing across showground as he rang the warning bell and announced “LEAVING IN FIFTEEN MINUTES.”
Frank says old age is catching up on him and the body just won’t allow him to do a lot of things anymore. We can all relate to that.
