No.1 ,

Details were confirmed on Monday as to our permitted activities in the Wollongong Mall this Friday 4th October. The day will be a fund raiser for our Rookie Life Saver Program. The day will run from 10.00 am to 3.30 pm when the band Killing Heidi will take over on the mall stage. The day has been arranged by Dwyers and they will be unveiling the new model commodore during the day. We will have a surf boat, IRB, RWV, first aid display, vidoes running, demonstrations, sausage sizzle, Jeremy Cotter - Ironman and we will be collecting donations for our rookie program.

We need as many patrollers and rookies in patrol uniform (shirt and shorts) to assist with the day. There will be a briefing at the mall centre stage at 9.45 to inform helpers of protocols for the day.

email: [email protected] to add your name to the helpers list for the day.

Call Gerald on 0411 102033 if you have other good ideas for Friday. This will be a great opportunity to profile our organisation and recruit new members.
