The banquet Saturday evening was a fine way to end a great reunion. The wood carving of the 2009 cake topper shark and rider made its debut surrounded by an array of elegant cakes. Also on display was the beautiful rendition of a shark rider presented to the FO/UWSS by the PJ members. Guest speaker, Jim McCarthy, spoke about the use of the hyperbaric chamber to treat medical problems.
