Congratulations to Judy Hodgkins who was presented with the 2017 Club Person of the Year Award at the AGM held at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club on 12th October.
The Club Person of the Year Award was instigated by Past Commodore Roger Bennett, and is an opportunity for a member or members to receive recognition from the General Committee for their actions, behaviour or efforts.
In presenting Judy with her award Commodore John Mooney noted that Judy, who has been a member and long standing contributor to the Club since 1995, had virtually single-handedly resurrected the Prawn and Oyster Luncheon on New Year's Day 2016 and 2017. It had been Judy's organisation, persistence and determination that had put the much loved event back on the calendar.
To warm applause, a surprised Judy thanked the Committee for her nomination and expressed special thanks to those that had helped her on the day and to Hugo Armstrong for his considerable achievements in organising raffle prizes each year, as well as to Peter Stow for his secretarial help.
Most importantly, Judy announced that she will be organising the event a third time, on New Year's Day 2018.
