Gerry Donovan Scholarship Winner

Nautilus members competed with determination this year in completing the 2018 Tely 10 Road Race. What better after a hard hot humid race than a few hydrating beverages. The club and party attendees shown below celebrated at the Quidi Vidi Boathouse.

A highlight each year at the Tely 10 Party is the presentation of the Gerry Donovan Memorial Scholarship which has a value of $1000 and remembers the life of club member and local sports figure Gerry Donovan.

This years winner, chosen from the many superb applicants, was Ms. Melissa Tobin, shown being presented with the scholarship by Nautilus Running Club President David Cooper. Congratulations to Melissa and thank you to the selection committee and those who applied this year.
