Life saving president speaks to Rotary club
The Rotary Club of Umina Beach recently welcomed Umina Surf Life Saving Club president Mr Stephen Scahill as guest speaker.
Mr Scahill spoke to Rotarians about the state of his club and its achievements throughout the year.
"Steve commenced his presentation with an informative short video which included impressive drone shots of Umina Beach, the surf club and the various activities performed by club members," said president Mr Rouel Vergara.
"He also spoke about how the surf club was voted number one club in the state by Surf Life Saving NSW and about Kai Darwin who was also voted Australia's Youth Life Saver of the Year, having previously won the NSW State Award," he said.
Mr Scahill also spoke to Rotarians about the operational setup at the club.
"The surf club is run by a board of directors who have portfolios of education, sport and finance.
"Membership at the surf club has doubled in 10 years to 1100.
"In addition to performing surf lifesaving activities, the club also participates in First Aid competitions and Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
"Steve attributes the success of the club to its ability to retain Nippers and train them up to become junior lifesavers and eventually adult lifesavers," Mr Vergara said.
