The members of the Lions Club of Kangaroo Island were treated to one of KI,s very special people last week when over 30 members visited the American River Volunteer Marine Rescue site, owned an operated by Carol Miel. As an unpaid volunteer Carol operates a

vital marine radio station from her home, yes in her shed and repeated in her house, providing an almost 24/7 emergency coverage for the benefit of all boaties and yachties who venture out on our local waters. Carol receives and logs literally thousands of radio calls each year and has assisted in numerous emergency situations in our waters in the twelve years since she began to operate the service. Tragically Carols radio transmitters were struck by lightning just before Christmas last year and she has operated on a combination of partially operational HF radios and the absence of battery back up. In recognising the vital service that Carol provides to all Kangaroo Island seafarers and all visiting boaties, by unanimous vote on the night, Lions donated Carol $5000.00 toward the upgrading of her communication equipment to keep her vital radio service at full strength.
