Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 21st August 2019 Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 21st August 2019

Yesterday I had the privilege to present the Annual Senior Citizen of the Year awards at the Civic Centre.  These awards recognise those over the age of 60, male and female, who have made a significant contribution over the past year to our community.

Congratulations Lee Hodgson, who at the age of 80, volunteers across many organisations, making the lives of others so much better.
 
Lee is involved with the Cooinda Nursing Home Ladies Auxiliary, Senior Citizens Hall Committee, Community Association Curra, is Assistant President of the View Club and was previously on the Committee for the Curra Country Club. She also assisted the Older Women’s Network and helped local kids with their tennis.

And if that’s not enough, she also volunteers at the Gympie Library where she delivers books to people who are house bound, and is on the roster for Meals on Wheels.

Congratulations also goes to Barry Grainger who is the President of the Mary Valley Show Society, celebrating this fantastic event’s 100 year anniversary.

Barry has been a volunteer for the organisation since 1969.

In 1989 Barry became involved with the show when he was chief steward of the rodeo section, then he became secretary in 1993 and 1994. 

Then in 2011 he became President of the show society; a role he still proudly holds today. 

The calibre of those nominated was to be commended. It was a reminder of how lucky we are to live in a community with people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make our region the great place that it is

Whether a winner or a nominee, from myself and the community, we thank you for all that you have done and all that you continue to do. 

Mayor Mick Curran
