Wodonga to recognise city's outstanding volunteers

Wodonga residents are being urged to nominate individuals and teams in this year’s Volunteer of the Year Awards. 

Wodonga Mayor Cr Anna Speedie said the awards were a great way to recognise the city's volunteers. 

“The bar gets higher every year. We’re delighted to see the people who are nominated across their diverse roles," Cr Speedie said.

"All are valuable contributors to our community and we thank them for their dedication and commitment.

"We know a lot of people in our community volunteer tirelessly for a number of organisations including community groups, schools and charities.

“We want to recognise them and their wonderful work, and hopefully inspire others to think about volunteering.”

The 2017 Wodonga Individual Volunteer of the Year Award went to Pam Roth for her contribution above and beyond her duties teaching young people to drive through the L2P program.

The 2017 Wodonga Volunteer Team of the Year Award went to the team at Bonegilla Migrant Experience for their invaluable support of a site that is historically listed and of much significance regionally and nationally.

The team included Bri Pfeiffer, Gary Mawby, Glynis Litchfield, Lois Salvisberg, Lucie van Aken, Jean van Aken, Malcolm Anderson, Melissa Gonczar, Paul Burns, Diana Johnston, Wendy Renshaw, Sharon Block, and Cheryl McDermott.

Award nominations open on Monday, March 19, 2018.

Entries close Friday, April 13 2018.
