May_BowserCongratulations to May Bowser who has been nominated for the Peter Keillor Award 2013! The award is given to one SES member each year, who has made an outstanding contribution to the community through their service in the SES. May has gone above and beyond in her commitment to the community and our unit, helping with much of the ‘behind the scenes’ work in both an operational and peace time context.
