The recent Propeller Club Liverpool lunch was not just a time to gather and enjoy each other’s company. It was also a time of reflection on what has been a very challenging couple of years for the Club.
Like any group that exists to bring people together, the impact of COVID could well have had a devastating effect. The fact that it hasn’t, and we were able to show that we are emerging again as a networking force is a testament to the hard work and dedication of so many people. Uppermost in our endeavours has been the role of President.
While we are now changing the structure of the Club to better protect and push us forward into the post-Pandemic world, we took the chance to reward and recognise Adam Whittle. He has been Propeller Club Liverpool President for three years, and finally stepped down at the end of his extended term at the lunch.
That Adam agreed to serve an extra year to help steady us through the most difficult waters of the past two years says much about his dedication to the Club, and the fact that he is a Propellerist through and through.
Past President Steven Jones took the stand to award Adam with a token of the Club’s appreciation and a memento of his time as President. The Club had a special Burgee made, one that recognises Adam, the Club and his time in office.
Adam remains on the Board of Propeller Club Liverpool, and will continue to work with our new Ambassadors to promote the Club and to achieve all that we promise to our members, and the local maritime community.
