Lynne Wilding Meritorious Service Award

Message from Kerri Lane:

You have just a few days left to nominate for the prestigious Lynne Wilding Award for Meritorious Service.

If you know of someone who has recently been active in the association, a busy bee working quietly in the background – or not so quietly – and you feel this person should be recognised then nominate them. Even a nomination brings their selflessness to the fore!

Noms close on June 1st – and this year to make it dead easy we have a form that can be found on the website that you simply have to download, fill in, send to Anita Joy and presto …
