Christmas came early for our Nippers

Semaphore SLSC has celebrated Christmas early with a special visit from Santa himself.  His elves were also very busy handing out treats to the youngsters.

Water Cover members were so excited about his pending visit they dressed up for the occasion.  Thanks to all of those volunteers who made the day special for our nippers and their families.

Full sized Santa photos are available for download.  Simply email juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au to get a link and  password.  Your child’s name and Age group must be included before access to photos can be granted.

Thank you tp all of those volunteers who made the day such a great success and to the many members who attended.

Old meets New – FOSSLS gather at the revamped Club

On Tuesday the 4th of December, the Club hosted a lunch for the FOSSLS – Former Old Semaphore Surf Life Savers, a group of Life & other Members most whose association with the Club dates back to our infancy in the mid to latter half of last century.

The  group of around 40, meet a few times a year, but this was the first time that they have met in the newly refurbished club rooms.  After a tour of the new facilities, our special guests sat down for a feed & a few old tales on the balcony.

The weather was great but the company & mateship was even better!
