Fox Town, Abaco came alive for three days on the 20-22 July when former students of Fox Town All Age School honoured Ralph Hanna. Mr. Hanna, affectionately known as "Teacher Hanna," was flown in for a special celebration and thanks for his contribution to the community some 50 odd years ago. There was a flurry of activities designed to show their appreciation for the great work he had done during his eleven years as Principal of Fox Town All Age School (1958-1969).

AFRAS membership includes the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and the British Royal National Lifeboat Institution as well as many other marine rescue organizations worldwide.
