Sadly, Autumn 2000 also saw the passing on of long time Association member and former crewman Joe Hayter. Association members gathered to pay their respects. The following photo is of Association President Ted Briggs (left) and Association Chairman J.R. Williams (right). They are shown holding the wreath for Joes funeral. Joe is much missed by all.
