We were *very* pleased to learn that our local Girl Guide Leader (Christine Karger) had been made one of our local ‘Citizens of the Year’ at a ceremony last week. Unfortunately we weren’t able to attend… mostly because we didn’t know the event was on… but must agree that Christine is a *very* worthy recipient of this award!
Christine received her award for her lifetime commitment to the Guiding movement. Over the years she has worked tirelessly to encourage not only the young girls themselves, but other volunteer leaders to stretch themselves, extend their abilities and skills and to develop into contributing members of the community. Her fundraising, motivational and organisational skills have been repeatedly demonstrated over the years and the continued development of new Guide units in the local area is largely due to her continuing efforts!
Christine will be onstage with other Australia Day Award winners on the lawns outside the Baulkham Shire Council buildings on Saturday, so anyone wishing to congratulate her can do so then.
Well done Christine – you really deserve this recognition.
