Norm Moore, one of Rugby League Brisbane’s most beloved life members, was recognised for 60 years of service with the Chairman’s Volunteer Service Award this past Sunday.
One of the founding committee members of the Carina Rugby League Football Club back in 1959 and the club’s inaugural secretary, Norm has been involved with the club from the very beginning and sits on the Carina Management Committee to this very day.
Carina was founded with a humble goal of providing the families of the local community a place to congregate and enjoy rugby league.
60 years on, the club has provided countless memories for thousands of men, women and children who have been able to enjoy local footy thanks in large part to the contributions of volunteers like Norm.
Norm was the inaugural club Secretary and served as the club’s registrar for over 40 years, signing up thousands of players over the years.
In 1974, Norm was awarded Brisbane Junior Rugby League life membership, which has since rolled over into 15 years of Life Membership of the current Rugby League Brisbane.
He worked as the club delegate to the Brisbane Junior Rugby League for 45 years and has worn almost every hat imaginable.
On Sunday, thirty guests attended the RLB Life Members Lunch at the Riverview Hotel where Norm was presented with the golden boot trophy to recognise 60 years of contributions to the Carina club and rugby league in Brisbane as a whole.
Norm is the last surviving member of the club’s founding committee, which was headed by Jack Donnelly, Norm’s friend and inaugural president.
