The intermittent rain didn’t dampen the spirits of Angair members and Friends of Eastern Otways at the annual end-of-year picnic at Moggs Creek in December. Fortunately, Margaret MacDonald had forecast the rain and arranged shelter in the Girl Guides open-sided building nearby.

Angair president Sally White presented an Honorary Life Membership certificate to Angair’s webmaster, Rod Brooks. The certificate was beautifully rendered by artist Kaye Traynor and featured the Painkalac River estuary which is another of Rod’s environmental commitments as convenor of Estuary Watch.

The certificate’s citation read that the award acknowledged Rod’s work in ‘ushering Angair into the digital era when, more than a decade ago, he established the society’s website. Since then his meticulous, reliable and creative management of the site has been invaluable in maintaining Angair’s public profile’.
