‘Golden Girls’ ac­knowl­edged

South Canterbury Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - MEGAN SUTHER­LAND

Three of Macken­zie’s ‘‘Golden Girls’’ have been recog­nised for their out­stand­ing vol­un­tary con­tri­bu­tions to the Fair­lie com­mu­nity in a spe­cial may­oral award. Phyl Jones, Moreen McColl and June Robert­son each re­ceived an award for their con­tri­bu­tions to the Fair­lie com­mu­nity.

They were pre­sented with their awards by Macken­zie District mayor Gra­ham Smith at the coun­cil’s meet­ing on Septem­ber 19.

Smith said the women made an out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity and ‘‘worked like ma­chines’’ across a num­ber of com­mu­nity events.

Smith de­scribed them as ’’The Golden Girls’’ who did any­thing for the com­mu­nity and worked like ma­chines putting to­gether the Fair­lie Sec­ond Hand Mar­ket, out­side the Heart­lands sort­ing all the items be­fore they went for sale.

They had also been piv­otal in or­gan­is­ing the Fair­lie In­cred­i­ble Ed­i­bles as well as run­ning Age Home Vis­its through out Fair­lie for el­derly res­i­dents.

They put so much back into the com­mu­nity, it felt fit­ting for the coun­cil to do some­thing a lit­tle ex­tra and ac­knowl­edge their work. He said these were just three of the ladies that were very spe­cial in the Macken­zie com­mu­nity and thanked them for their self­less con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity.
