Three new Life Members announced…

Karekare Surf Lifesaving Club are delighted to announce three new Life Members for our club that were confirmed at our Thank you dinner on Sunday 30 May 2021.

It was a tough season on the beach at Karekare with no clubhouse facility. That meant no where to make a cup of tea, no bathroom facilities and no warm shower after 7 plus hours on the beach, sometimes in howling wind and rain.

But our lifeguards are tough and this only makes us stronger and more determined to finish our magnificent new building.

At our dinner held at Swanson RSA we announced three new members to our Life Membership list.

These three members have dedicated much of their adult (and some their youth) to Karekare and ensuring members of the public who visit the beach return home safely. They have held an extensive list of positions and continue to do so, over the decades from Patrol Captains, IRB Drivers, Vice Patrol Captains, Club Captain, Members of the Executive Committee, competed with sports teams, Junior Surf and Rookie coaches and part of our rebuild project teams.

We thank them and their families for their dedicated service to the club and look forward to their continued support as we move into a new phase of the clubs future.

  1. Awesome! As a regular surfer at Kare from 2012 to 2015, and occasionally now that I’m home in Opotiki, I always valued the presence of the Club, the vibe they bring to the beach. Thank God, haven’t yet needed their assistance, but appreciate that they never stood between me and the mighty Tasman Sea. Good on yas!
