St John members get recognition
St John Ambulance WA has recognised 92 members for exceptional service to the organisation at the annual Investiture of the Western Australian Commandery of the Order of St John.
Onslow resident Maxine Moroney was recognised for 10 years of service and Newman’s Jeff Doggett for eight years service.
St John chief executive Tony Ahern said the members made a significant contribution to the organisation.
“Being admitted to, or promoted within, the Order of St John is a great honour and we are very proud of the volunteers and staff recognised this year, some which have dedicated more than 50 years of service in caring for their community,” he said.
“Occasions such as the investiture bring attention to the remarkable volunteers and employees at the core of St John who help deliver a world-class ambulance service and help make first aid part of everyone’s lives.”
This year an additional award was introduced to the ceremony, with 19 members presented with Lifetime Association certificates acknowledging 50, 60 and an outstanding 65 years of service.
