The Community of Blackwood Uniting congratulates Marge Gibson for her award of an Australian Honour [Order of Australia Medal] in the Queen’s Birthday Honours last weekend.
The citation for the Award saluted Marge’s dedicated service “to the community of Blackwood”.
Together with Doug, Marge has given long service to Lions in clubs throughout Australia [40 years], Blackwood Meals on Wheels [25 years], and Rotary Indigenous Health scholarships. Marge’s further personal service has been as a Telecross caller, as President of Cantamus Choir, member of the Blackwood Hills Choral Society, time on the Patient Transport Roster and providing entertainment in elderly citizen’s homes for many years.
All of this Marge has done in a humble spirit of graciousness and kindness. We are glad to share in honouring her service and celebrating this national recognition.
