Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

LONG-TIME lo­cal res­i­dents Mario and Glo­ria De­mar­tini were ap­pointed pa­trons of the Whit­sun­day PCYC at the in­sti­tu­tion’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week. Mario De­mar­tini is a for­mer Whit­sun­day mayor.

PCYC chair­man Bob Bo­gie said the De­mar­tini’s were in­stru­men­tal in the for­ma­tion and on­go­ing suc­cess of the Whit­sun­day PCYC branch.

“Mario was on the steer­ing com­mit­tee in 1998 and he’s been with me ever since and Glo­ria joined the main com­mit­tee when we opened in 2002,” Mr Bo­gie said.

Glo­ria De­mar­tini said to be awarded life mem­ber­ship and pa­tron­age in one year was amaz­ing.

“I was very hon­oured to think the com­mit­tee would be­stow the first pa­trons upon Mario and my­self,” she said.

Mrs De­mar­tini also paid trib­ute to Whit­sun­day PCYC branch man­ager Sergeant John Dick­in­son.

“He is so hard work­ing and ded­i­cated and just a great per­son to work with,” she said.

Join­ing the De­mar­tini’s on the 2013-14 com­mit­tee are Act­ing Sergeant Si­mon Dock­ing, Con­sta­ble Lyn­delle Gibbs, Ron Pet­tersen, Steve Smith, Anita Davies and Tanya Staton. Jan Clif­ford was elected vice chair­per­son and John Staton trea­surer.
