Shore Seekers Club News

Jan. 22, 2018
Club elections were held. Bill Draper stepped down as president after many years of service. He will remain as huntmaster. Craig East has stepped down as treasurer. Andy Nunez was nominated to become President. Jerry McClymont was nominated as treasurer. There were no additional nominees for the positions of vice president and secretary. Andy and Jerry were elected and Ed Donovan and Julie Pryor were returned as vice president and secretary respectively. Thanks to Bill and Craig for their years of service and congratulations to the current officers.

Treasure Hunter of the Year was awarded at our Christmas party in December. Long time Shore Seeker, John Johnson, who died in October, was unanimously awarded this honor. John's dedication to the club and its members is and was appreciated by everyone. We presented a commemorative plaque to John's widow, Dawn, at our party. Thank you John - we'll all miss you.
