Honour RollCitizen of the Year Award - 2008
2008’s recipient of the Citizen of the Year award has been involved in the theatrical community of Willoughby for the last 31 years. She has been a member of the Willoughby Theatre Company since 1973, making her first appearance on the stage in the chorus of “Call me Madam”.
Since then she has taken on numerous volunteer roles for the company including Booking Officer since 1982. This is an enormous task, which includes the processing of 4,000 tickets per show, managing VIP invitations, and balancing and banking ticketing sales. She has also been part of the transition from manual bookings through to Internet ticket bookings.
She was given Honorary membership of Willoughby Theatre Company in 1990 and Life membership in 1997. Her involvement in the theatre community has seen her extend her time and skills to other groups including the Chatswood Musical Society and the Dougherty Entertainers.
Outside of this she also finds time to support the Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai hospital as a pink lady, volunteering at the church and assisting weekly in the running of the op-shop.
