SES DG's farewell

After 7 years in the top job the boss of the SES, Philip McNamara had his farewell dinner on Saturday. A group of us from Wollongong SES were among the 200 guests, mostly volunteers from around the state who paid homage to a man who has lifted the image of the SES to what it is today.

The City Beach function centre hosted the dinner which included parlimentary dignitaries, other Emergency Services personnel and his family. Nothing but accolade's were stowed upon him as everyone enjoyed a 3 course dinner and dancing.
