For seven decades Invercargill Rowing Club member Ron Riley has dedicated time and service to his rowing club.
At the club held on Saturday, he was presented with a special service award for his commitment to the club.
Mr Riley joined the club in 1949 as a coxswain at age 10. Now at age 80, he still bikes out to the clubrooms to mow the lawns and took part in rowing races at last weekend
