comments from the public and lions alike have been

morning.
I aended the 3rd Council meeng in Sydney along with
the District Governor Elect Sue Lowe. Lion Richard Tumner
also aended the Cabinet secretary training on the same
week end. Along with meengs we did have a good social
opportunity to meet and mix with DGs, DGEs and Cab

weekend all round.
We are connuing to rebuild the district and I am pleased
to say we now have the beginnings of the Lions Club of

LIONS EXEMPLARY SERVICE AWARD
DONGARA-DENISON LIONS CLUB
Dongara–Denison Lions Club nished their year with a
Christmas funcon including awarding a well deserved
Exemplary Service Award to one of their Community.
Joyce Huck was born in England and came to Western
Australia in 1974, with her husband and daughter
Sarah.
In 1984 they moved to Exmouth where Joyce
volunteered at the jumble sale, school and always
raised money for charies by selling rae ckets and
helped organised the rst disco duck for the kids of
Exmouth.
Joyce and Chris then moved to Carnarvon in 1992
where Joyce started volunteering at her rst op shop,
helping an aboriginal boy called Jacob (Woolworths
best trolley boy, who sll works there now!) and also
helping out at the schools. Joyce and husband Chris also
volunteered at the gate at speedway every fortnight.
In 2006 they moved to Dongara where Joyce has
embraced the community and loves the country life.
Their long term plan is to rere in Dongara but as
everyone knows mum has only rered from paid work.
As all the voluntary work she does in the town is what
keeps her going so there is no chance of her rering
from that!!!
Joyce has been a volunteer at the local Dongara
Charies (Op Shop) for many Years, serving on the
management commiee. You oen see Joyce at the Op
Shop on weekends (out of shop hours) clearing away
items that have been le at the front or back of the shop. She is there early in the mornings before anyone else clearing
the donaon bin. Joyce will sort specialised merchandise items for Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Australia Day. She
coordinates Thursday sta, organises out of season storage and coordinates season Changeovers.
Joyce will put her had up for anything that is happening in Dongara Denison and she helps the Lions Club with their events
- Blessing of the Fleet, Seniors Picnic, where she will come dressed is something quite dierent (like the Queen) to sell
rae ckets to all the seniors who are enjoying the day.
The Community Fesval is another commiee that Joyce is involved with, giving all her 100% and more. Seng up on the
day early in the morning and sll there when it closes at 8.30pm at night.
Joyce is there again in the forefront with the Cancer Council and the Big Morning Tea helping with the organising etc
The local newspaper (Dongara Denison Rag) enjoys Joyce volunteering once a week, helping collate and coordinate the
volunteers that put the Rag together.
Joyce has been on the commiee of Dongara Community Resource Centre for eight years, serving as president for four of
those eight and is a respected and popular member. She has been acvely assisng the CRC to provide community events
and encourage community members to engage and parcipate. She is always contribung ideas, oering to help and will
work above and beyond to make an event successful. With her enthusiasm, vibrant energy and bubbly personality Joyce
always ensures people laugh and have a good me.
Communies need people like Joyce,
One person cannot change a community but one person can create many ripples. We are lucky to have Joyce Huck in our
Dongara-Denison community.
