The Gauteng Life Boat Circle, under the facilitation of Rhona Manack, held a
brunch get together for their members at the International Hotel School in
Morning Glen. Their young students enrolled for the chef’s course presented
a wonderful spread of both savoury and sweet items – and as a gift to NSRI!
A very special Speaker addressed the members. He is Dr Pieter Landsberg,
who formed the original Station 22 Mobile Unit of NSRI back in 1984.
Together with trained volunteers from the SA Red Cross, divers and cox’ns a
highly successful specialised unit was set up to respond to casualties
trapped in upturned racing boats, and similar tricky rescues.
Amongst the members and bequestors of Gauteng’s Life Boat Circle were many
long-time supporters, who witnessed Jim Morrison, receive his Bequestor
Certificate and badge from National Bequest Officer, Margaret McCulloch, up
from Cape Town to share in this special occasion.
