Decades of vi­tal ser­vice awarded

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

MEM­BER for Lock­yer Jim Mcdon­ald re­cently pre­sented cer­tifi­cates to two of the elec­torate’s long­est serv­ing jus­tices of the peace.

Mary Bu­glass and Chris­tine Py­ers have been serv­ing the com­mu­nity as reg­is­tered jus­tices of the peace for 25 and 40 years re­spec­tively.

Look­ing back on their ser­vice, both women com­mented it had been a plea­sure to serve the com­mu­nity and as­sist those in need.

Dur­ing their many years of ser­vice, Mary – who pre­vi­ously served as a JP in New South Wales for 15 years – and Chris­tine have de­voted hours to sign­ing thou­sands of doc­u­ments, statu­tory dec­la­ra­tions and af­fi­davits.

Even af­ter their decades of ser­vice, the pair have no im­me­di­ate plans to re­tire.
