Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Scott Tib­balls

LONG­STAND­ING mem­bers of the Moss­man Branch of the Aus­tralian Red Cross were pre­sented with awards com­mem­o­rat­ing decades of serv­ing at the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week.

The five mem­bers (pic­tured) clocked in a com­bined 210 years ser­vice be­tween them.

Guest speaker Win­fred Smith, who is a board mem­ber of the Queens­land Di­vi­sion of Red Cross, com­mended the Moss­man Branch for their work. “Thankyou for your won­der­ful con­tri­bu­tion. Read­ing about what you have done as a small branch has been amaz­ing.”

Trea­surer Eve­lyn Matthews re­ported that fund rais­ing ef­forts had been fruit­ful in the past year, with the com­mu­nity con­tin­u­ing to support the ef­forts of the small branch to raise money for wor­thy causes.

Oper­a­tions man­ager for North Queens­land Luke Weni­tong re­marked that “in this eco­nomic cli­mate, I think you guys have done a fan­tas­tic job with limited re­sources.”
