WORK­ING for your com­mu­nity with­out any pay is not al­ways easy, but to do it for 20 years with due dili­gence and com­mit­ment with­out pay is out­stand­ing.

A long ser­vice medal for 20 years’ ser­vice to the lo­cal am­bu­lance ser­vice in Eidsvold was pre­sented posthu­mously to Au­drey Larsen who sadly passed away in Jan­uary of 2013.

At the re­cent lo­cal am­bu­lance com­mit­tee an­nual gen­eral meet­ing, Scot­tWicks, of­fi­cer in charge of the Eidsvold sta­tion, was hon­oured to present the long ser­vice medal to Mrs Larsen’s daugh­ter, Lori Mur­ray, who was also recog­nised with a long ser­vice medal for 10 years’ ded­i­cated ser­vice.

“Th­ese medals are in recog­ni­tion of the time our val­ued lo­cal am­bu­lance com­mit­tee mem­bers put into the com­mu­nity to help ben­e­fit our lo­cal am­bu­lance ser­vice,” MrWicks said.

Mrs Larsen made the lo­cal Am­bu­lance Ser­vice and Ben­e­fit Com­mit­tee an in­te­gral part of her life and

Mrs Mur­ray’s mem­o­ries of her mum were that she al­ways played an ac­tive role in the Am­bu­lance Com­mit­tee.

“Mum al­ways felt it was time well spent and it was for a great cause,” she said.

“Mum’s love for fam­ily and the Eidsvold com­mu­nity al­ways came first.”

Mrs Larsen was a mem­ber of sev­eral com­mit­tees in Eidsvold and was al­ways first to put up her hand to help the school, his­tor­i­cal so­ci­ety and the Eidsvold Ea­gles Rugby League.

“Please ac­cept our heart­felt thanks for the hon­our of the recog­ni­tion that mum has re­ceived from the lo­cal Am­bu­lance Com­mit­tee and Queens­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice,” Mrs Mur­ray said.

Mrs Larsen was also the pa­tron of the Eidsvold Swimming Club.
