SES chosen to receive club support CLUB Five Dock president Harry McKinnon has chosen the Canada Bay State Emergency Service unit to be the beneficiary of the 2008 President's Black Tie Dinner on September 26. Canada Bay SES training co- ordinator Terry Bleyer will help to decorate the club's function room with an SES theme. ''As volunteers we are very grateful for any assistance that is forthcoming from local com- munity groups to make our re- sponse more timely and effective,'' Mr Bleyer said. SES volunteer Bill Hoyles hopes the local community will join in the fundraising effort. ''The Club Five Dock president has taken a personal interest in making sure that those attending the dinner will not only have an opportunity to give generously for a worthwhile cause, but will also be able to gain a greater under- standing of the role of the SES in floods and storms,'' he said.
