On 27 June, President Shellz handed over the chain of office to our new president for 2018-19, Kevin McGirr.
Shellz presented Nelson Coastguard President Wayne Harrison with a cheque for $5000, being proceeds from the Boulder Bank Walk.
Russell Egan received his Charter Member lapel pin after 52 years, and John Cooper received a special mention and appreciation from Shellz for his great work editing the bulletin.
The Bill Mangos Attendance Trophy was awarded this year jointly to Richard Topliss and Nigel Sutton.
Kevin thanked Shellz for her leadership, which will always be remembered. For the coming year, Kevin urged us all to “Be the Inspiration”.
