The South West Rocks Surf Life Saving Club celebrated 100 years of protecting swimmers and beachgoers in the local region last weekend.
Past and present members gathered to reminisce and take part in festivities which began on Friday afternoon and concluded on Sunday.
South West Rocks Surf Life Saving Club publicity officer Grahame Ball told the Argus more than 150 people gathered to celebrate a century of surf life saving in the region.
"It was a huge weekend and we all celebrated the last 100 years of Surf Life Saving in South West Rocks and looked forward to a very positive future," Ball said.
"There was a get together at the surf club on Friday night and everyone looked at memorabilia and shared a lot of stories over a couple of refreshments.
"Then on Saturday there was around 160 to 180 people in attendance for a luncheon. Life members and the former voice of Surf Life Saving Australia Leo Jeffries spoke and it got quite emotional at times. The celebrations continued into the afternoon.
"We then gathered at the beach on Sunday for morning nippers."
South West Rocks Surf Life Saving Club president Rod McDonagh was re-elected for a 22nd term as president at the club's AGM last Thursday night.
