The man cred­ited with turn­ing the Red Dog 4WD Club around was granted life mem­ber­ship at a club meet­ing last week.

Over the past five years, of which Gary Vin­cent was pres­i­dent for three, the club has be­gun rais­ing more funds for com­mu­nity groups, work­ing be­hind the bar at events, and this year helped out with the Red Dog Re­lay.

Mr Vin­cent said he was hon­oured to join the small group of life mem­bers.

“The club has grown from when I first came here with a dozen mem­bers to up to 71 mem­bers in re­cent years,” he said. “I have lots of fond mem­o­ries.” Red Dog 4WD Club pres­i­dent Mark Han­non said the role Mr Vin­cent had played in grow­ing the club could not be un­der­stated.

“Mate, that guy is awe­some, an ab­so­lutely bril­liant guy,” he said.
