Dorrigo community pays tribute to army of local volunteers
DORRIGO turned on a spectacular morning for the National Volunteer Week morning tea held at Dangar Falls.
More than 35 volunteers attended the morning tea which saw Nancy Perrin recognised for her long standing contributions to the Dorrigo Tourist Association.
During her 25-plus years of service as a volunteer Nancy has worn many hats.
She held the office of vice-president from 1992 to 2002, was then elected treasurer which she held until 2013 and is again vice-president and public officer.
In addition to her executive duties, for over 12 years Nancy has filled the role of purchasing officer, successfully selecting and acquiring souvenirs for sale at the centre.
Nancy was born in the Dorrigo area and has a wealth of local knowledge.
She can accurately recall activities that have taken place in the community over her many years and is a living repository of local history and events.
Deputy mayor Desmae Harrison thanked all the volunteers and emphasized the importance of recognising their tireless contribution to the community.
"It is also very pleasing to see that so many volunteers were able to be part of this celebration," Cr Harrison said.
