Show so­ci­ety be­stows hon­our

Chinchilla News - - WEST -

A WOMAN has been awarded life mem­ber­ship by the St Ge­orge Pastoral and Agri­cul­tural As­so­ci­a­tion to hon­our her years of hard work and ded­i­ca­tion.

Last week, Delia Hams re­ceived the award af­ter re­tir­ing as chief pav­il­ion ste­ward of the St Ge­orge Show, a role she held for 11 years. Mrs Hams said she was de­lighted to win the award. “It was quite a sur­prise ac­tu­ally but, yeah, very pleased and I feel hon­oured to re­ceive it,” she said. “And it’s re­ally nice to think that the com­mit­tee thought I de­serve recog­ni­tion for my ser­vice.”

St Ge­orge Pastoral and Agri­cul­tural As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Su­san Hig­gins said Delia’s ser­vice could not go un­no­ticed. “The life mem­ber­ship was given to Delia for her years of ded­i­cated ser­vice to so­ci­ety,” she said. “A lot of people don’t work for one com­mit­tee for that long and take on roles like she has.

“She is al­ways will­ing to help ev­ery­one and any­one who has a ques­tion she’ll jump in and help out.”
