Narooma Woodies Farewell President
The Narooma Woodies have created a plaque to mark the passing of long term President of the club, Colin Boxsell.
Colin was born in Bodalla and attended the Old Bodalla School where the Woodies are now based. He moved to Narooma when he married Jan in 1972. Colin was very good with his hands whether it involved mechanical repairs or woodwork. Over the years he worked for a number of Narooma businesses, was involved in many local clubs and even made salt and pepper shakers for the woodwork gallery in Central Tilba.
He was a member of Narooma Woodies for over 25 years, serving in a number of roles, and had been President of the club for several years when he passed away in late 2022 after a short illness. He was also one of the main organisers of the Tilba Woodwork Show which is now in its 27th year.
His wife Jan and son Scott attended the Woodies for the unveiling of a plaque dedicated to Colin which will be placed in the main workshed.
