Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club
I was very pleased again to attend this year’s Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club presentation night and to present the Fred Leiper Memorial Best Patrol Person Award, which was this year awarded to Bo Chudosnik for displaying the highest level of commitment to patrol operations throughout the season. He has shown outstanding leadership as a mentor and trainer and is a highly respected club member.
It was also a pleasure on that evening to announce additional funding for the club for its new observation tower to be built on the beach. This of course is on top of funding of $2.675 million, which we have already provided to rebuild the club’s facilities. I want to congratulate the president, David Pavia, the club committee and members along with all the award winners for their commitment and contribution to the Ocean Grove community.
