Three women named Freemen

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THREE Ned­lands res­i­dents have been of­fi­cially hon­oured for their com­mu­nity ser­vice by be­ing ap­pointed Freemen of the City of Ned­lands.

Ruth Reid, Mary McCall and Sue Morey have com­mit­ted them­selves to com­mu­nity ser­vice for most of their lives in vol­un­teer­ing, li­brary ser­vices and res­pi­ra­tory medicine nurs­ing.

The three women were named in a for­mal cer­e­mony at the Adam Arm­strong Pavil­ion this month.

Mayor Max Hip­kins said be­ing named a Free­man of the City was the high­est hon­our the City could give to a com­mu­nity mem­ber.

“The City is proud to have of­fi­cially be­stowed three new Freemen of the City, bring­ing the city’s to­tal num­ber of Freemen to six, the max­i­mum num­ber of per­sons that may hold the hon­orary ti­tle,” he said.

“The awards to Ruth, Mary and Sue as Freemen of the City is recog­ni­tion by the coun­cil of their long stand­ing ser­vice to the com­mu­nity. They have all played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the civic af­fairs of the City and WA.”

Ms Reid was hon­oured for more than 20 years of com­mu­nity ser­vice as a vol­un­teer to many not-for-profit groups and Ms McCall was named for her ded­i­ca­tion to the State Li­brary.

Ms Morey was named for her work as a nurse prac­ti­tioner in res­pi­ra­tory medicine at Sir Charles Gaird­ner Hos­pi­tal.
