We started the night with the presentation of a Paul Harris Fellow to Carol Keogh for her service to our Community. Carol has been a volunteer at Liverpool Hospital for more than 24 years providing valued help to patients of the hospital in a cheerful and pleasant way. Her efforts have comforted many patients and their families.

There were 12 awardees nominated by their employers, club members and the community. Master of Ceremonies – Ted Mlynarz called on Vocational Service Director Dr Bob Groat to introduce the nominees:-

Mitchell and Renee Stanley (with support from baby Savanna Grace) – Werombi Farm Produce, this young working couple have stepped up to assist in our Saturday Market operations at a time when serious health issues were causing problems.
