Significant men identified

A group of 13 men from the Peninsula have been included in the Significant Men of the Central Coast book.

The books features 114 Central Coast men who have made a significant contribution to their community in some way.

The book was compiled after the success of the book series Significant Women of the Central Coast, according to book editor Ms Margaret Hardy.

The book will be launched at a ceremony in Gosford on November 21.

"When men began to ask, 'What about us', and I looked around and talked with people, I discovered some wonderful stories of men working together to help build communities, facilities and infrastructure, plus helping people in the community in many ways through their professions, business or community spirit," Ms Hardy said.

"It has been a pleasure meeting many of these men and hearing their stories.

"I am only sorry some of the men nominated didn't answer our request for their stories. "Maybe they are so busy doing good deeds, they didn't have time!"

Significant Peninsula men featured in the book include the late Harry Boyle of Phegan's Bay, Merv Bray of Ettalong, Bill Clark of Woy Woy, the late Jack Clark of Umina, Stephen Clarke of Umina, John Greenway of Pearl Beach, Don Leggett of Woy Woy, John Irvine of Pearl Beach, Noel Olive of Umina, Bob Puffett of the Bays, the late Vincent Serventy of Pearl Beach, Ron Sharp of Woy Woy and Fritz Baumung of Phegan's Bay.

Other local identities to be included in the book are Gordon Ferguson, Barney Waters and Patrick Donnellan of Empire Bay, and David Dufty of Killcare Heights.

Gosford mayor Cr Chris Holstein is also featured in the book for his contribution to local business in Woy Woy as well as Peninsula News publisher Cec Bucello.
