PP Chris Cox (Honorary Member)

Guest Speaker Chris Cox (Past President of our club) introduced by PP Lew Hills

NB PPCC presented from top table!!

Leane's Trench (LT)

LT had a visit from Neil Oliver's Coasts tv program which has a viewing audience of 24m.

CC thinks this increase tourist interest.

His concern is that they only have eight active volunteers working at LT.

Also concerned re numbers coming from cruise ships.

LT receives $25 per cruise ship visitor. RSL gets $5. HMAS Sydney Memorial gets $2

Cruise ships will only sell tickets to LT if they get enough interest...

Also challenge of renewing sandbags at LT. It is a never ending job.

PP Laurie Dines presents a Gift to PP Chris Cox
