Our annual Vocational Awards Night 
is always one of the highlights of our Club’s program, and last week’s event was no exception.  45 members, partners and guests attended the evening when we recognised 10 individuals from our local community for excellence in their vocation.
The evening’s proceedings were overseen by our Vocational Service Director, Rob Moffat, who ensured that everything ran smoothly and to time.
Our local Federal member, Lucy Wicks, was invited to attend the evening, but work commitments in Canberra meant she was unable to be present.  She did, however, send a letter of apology which was read by Gina Growden, in which she congratulated the Awardees and thanked them for their commitment to their vocations and for their efforts in making the world a better place.
In Lucy’s absence, our incoming District Governor, Peter Ward, officiated in handing out the Awards.  Photos were taken by Peter Hamilton.
Three Awardees: Diane Taylor, Garry Adlard and Kathleen Hunter were recognised for their volunteering work cleaning up Terrigal Beach. 
Other Awardees were:
Fiona Thorrington, Cruise and Travel Consultant, Cruise & Travel Authority, Terrigal
Kevin D’Almaida, Catering Supervisor, Breakers Country Club
Wendy McCormack, Training Director. Radio 94.1
Roy Henry, Secretary, Terrigal Men’s Shed
Chris Gethen, Supervisor, Breaker’s Country Club
Jim McCormack, Directory, Technical Support Radio 94.1
Rebekah Lester, Esteem Fitness Solutions
