On 13th August over 120 friends and family gathered at Penrith Paceway to farewell five of Penrith’s finest Drivers, Norm Mendham, Peter O’Leary, Peter Kschenka, Ron Van Der Zee and Dave Goonewardene. Combined, they have over 160 years of experience.

Many great speeches were made about some of their more memorable moments which our retirees would rather have hoped had been forgotten. There was a lot of laughter and even a tear or two. We wish our five retirees all the best for the future in their retirement.

    Congratulations on your recent retirement. I’ve known you for the last 35 years. .

    I also had previous arrangements for that day of your Send Off (Saturday 13 August 2016).

    I wish to take this opportunity to wish you, Peter, a, long, happy and healthy retirement.
