Lenny joined the Band on the 15th November 1934 at the age of 17, and has been a stalwart of the Band even since his retirement in the 1980’s, having travelled with the Band to the Ballarat Band Competitions in 2004, and actively participating in the Band’s 80th Anniversary celebrations in 2006.

The Band Hall served as a fitting venue for the celebration, as various photos and displays reminded attendees of Len’s dedication to the Band over many, many years.

The current members thank Len for his part in the Hahndorf Banding legacy we now enjoy, and extend their congratulations on achieving this milestone, and best wishes for the future.
