At this time last year I was overwhelmed about being chosen as the South Gippsland Shire Citizen of the Year for 2017. It was an overwhelming experience and one I will not forget.
A big thank you must be given to the South Gippsland Shire for organising the Australia Day Awards and the people who nominated the candidates to participate in the South Gippsland Shire Awards for 2017.
All candidates would agree it was a humbling experience to see your names up in print.
We all do volunteer work, and may meet certain challenges but we obtain a great deal of pleasure helping people and our community.
I was overwhelmed about being chosen as The South Gippsland Shire Citizen of the Year 2017. Thank you one and all for your kind words and acknowledgement shown in many ways on this great honour in 2017.
Last but not least ‘Good Luck’ to everyone and also the events nominated for the South Gippsland Shire Awards for 2018.
Thank you one and all.
Bev Hanley, Dumbalk.
