Woopi Marine Rescue Unit turns the big 5-0

THE Woolgoolga Marine Unit is inviting the community to join it in celebrating 50 years on December 12.

To celebrate half a century, the unit will be joining forces with emergency services including the local police, the Royal Fire Service and the SES to display educational stalls about the valuable work of each service. Woolgoolga Lions Club is helping the unit celebrate the historic milestone and donated a cheque to rescue members last week.

Rescue members Beth Holroyd, Mitch Harvey, Greg McIntosh, Greg Dunbar and Keith Minhinnett were presented the cheque by one of the Lions club's newest members, Luke Graham.

The Woolgoolga Marine Rescue Unit hopes members past and present will attend the birthday party in the coming weeks.

Those interested in becoming a member at the unit can contact admin.woolgoolga @marinerescuensw.com.au for more information.

Volunteer training sessions are held at the unit on Thursday and Sunday from 9am until noon.
