To celebrate the achievements and efforts of our local volunteers the Busselton Dunsborough Volunteer Centre in conjunction with the City of Busselton hosted the Volunteer of the Year recognition awards for Busselton and Dunsborough. These awards allow an opportunity for the community to show its appreciation of the many hours of devoted community work that volunteers contribute to the City. Volunteers contribute enormously to the health and welfare of our community and these awards will recognise and highlight outstanding achievements and service to the community by nominated individuals. Nominations were assessed by the Volunteer of the Year Awards Selection Committee consisting of prominent members of our City and winners were announced on Monday 21st May at the City of Busselton Civic Function Room. With nominations across five categories the judges had some difficult decisions to make and the winners were:
Harvey Norman Open Award: John Martin
Geographe Camping and Tackle World Seniors Award: John Morris
Apex Youth Award: Bianca Gervasi
Rotary Tourism & Events Award: Charmian Terry
Lions Club Volunteer with Less than Three Years Service Award: Robert Withington
There were also 4 highly commended certificates awarded to: Brian Slee, Danae Plowman, Innes Barker and Heather Carrol
