ARMADALE FRIENDSHIP GIRL GUIDES have just celebrated their 40th birthday. The group celebrated with past and present members with a party at Armadale Guide Hall. The group remain dedicated to providing a place for 6 to 10-year-olds to grow and develop their leadership potential.
NASHOS WA are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. The group was initially created to maintain friendships between national servicemen who served in the 1950s and the Vietnam War and have grown from five members to a couple of hundred. They recently celebrated their milestone with a special lunch at the Gosnells Hotel.
ARMADALE employee June Thorne recently celebrated 30 years working at Coles.
Mrs Thorne started when she was 17 years old as a check-out operator in Albury, NSW, where she met her future husband. She said the highlight of her career had been working all across the country. “I have worked across four states, 24 stores and in several roles during my career and I have loved the variety and the people I have met along the way,” she said. “I have been everything from office manager to store compliance manager, and now I am the duty manager at Coles Armadale.” Having surviving breast cancer, Mrs Thorne said she also enjoyed joining in on fundraising efforts with her team outside of working hours.
