Johanna follows tradition
INSPIRED by her mother and grandmother, 15-year-old Johanna Cleary loves lending a hand.
Mt Perry’s Young Citizen of the Year said she enjoyed community involvement.
“With the show I was always involved, and the races I just asked,” she said.
A founding member of Mt Perry Girl Guides, Johanna has also become a show steward – first in photography, then in cooking – to follow in the footsteps of her great-grandmother, grandmother and mother.
Mother Kym Cleary said Johanna’s suggestion of a “selfie” photography competition at the show had proved popular.
Johanna has also assisted at the Mt Perry Art Show, Working Dogs Association, Race Club, school and RSL.
YOUNG CITIZEN OF THE YEAR: Johanna Cleary, 15, is an active volunteer in Mt Perry.
