The 115th AGM was held in person on Sunday 17th July at the club, with a great number of members and VIP guests attending and showing their support. We also had a number of members attend online via zoom.
Thank you to our Patrons Des Macteer, Jean Hay AM and David Hay for continuing on as Patrons for the 116th season. It was great to see you at the AGM. Also thank you to Mayor Michael Regan for coming along.

Special thanks to Frank Traugott who leaves the Board after actively serving for 12 years. He remains, however, the Immediate Past President and will no doubt be involved going forward. Also, thanks to Freya O’Neill, Olivia Penny and Brian Mariotti who were assistants last season and have decided not to stand again.
All Directors and their assistants contribute many hours to ensuring the Club properly functions, and do all those things behind the scenes that most people don’t know about. We cannot do it alone, however, and need everyone’s contribution to ensure we can fulfill our responsibilities as a surf lifesaving club.
