Volunteers shine in Division 1
The community spirit in Division 1 has always shone through.
That was clear during this year’s Logan City Council Volunteer Awards, with 2 major winners and 3 nominees calling Division 1 home.
Carole Willson was joint winner of the Frank Lenz Memorial Award, recognised for almost a decade of work with Logan East Community Neighbourhood Centre. She shared this with John Mulraney from the Rotary Club of Beenleigh.
Youth Volunteer of the Year Bella-Marie Anderson, also a Division 1 resident, was recognised for her work supporting people experiencing homelessness, poverty and domestic violence at outreach organisation ‘Touch of Hope’.
Carole and Bella are fine examples of the community spirit we see so much of here in Division 1, and congratulations go out to these 2 women, and to all of those nominated for the awards.
Our community’s volunteers are quietly dedicated to what they do; they don’t seek out accolades, but it is so important to recognise them and their important contributions.
Three other Division 1 nominees who do amazing things in the community were Joan Shiels, of Rochedale Springwood Meals on Wheels; Lorraine Cusack, nominated for her work at Palm Lake Care in Mount Warren Park, where she assists the Lifestyle team to provide social programs; and Anne Kotzur, who has spent more than 30 years volunteering at the Our Saviour Lutheran Church.
