The Club Mourns the Passing of Betty Martin

BAC members are mourning the loss of Betty Martin, wife of one of the pillars of the BAC, Ron Martin.

Ron, Life-Member, past President, tireless worker and supporter of the Club, had cared for Betty for many years while she courageously fought a number of serious illnesses.  Betty's health had prevented her from attending many Club activities in recent years, but whenever she was able to she was always a popular presence.
