Mayor, Gash pays tribute to Shoalhaven welfare and charity organisations

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash hosted a special morning tea over the weekend paying tribute to the area’s charitable and welfare organisations.


In excess of over 100 local groups and organisations attended the reception held at the Nowra Administration Building with representatives from Shoalhaven Heads Surf Life Saving Club, Legacy, Marine Rescue and the CWA among those in attendance.


Mayor, Gash said the morning tea was Council’s way of recognising the amazing work carried out by the area’s many volunteer organisations.


The Mayor used the reception to highlight the positive effect volunteerism has on the local community.


“Shoalhaven City is extremely lucky to have so many dedicated and hardworking residents prepared to volunteer their time for the betterment of the wider community,” said Clr Gash.


“It is not until you stop and consider the effect these organisations have on the lives of many residents that you can gain a true appreciation for the role they play within the local community.


“From the RSL and Vietnam Veterans Association through to the Men’s Shed, VIEW Club and Surf Life Saving Association, each of these organisations plays a vitally important role right across the Shoalhaven.”


“Saturday’s reception provided Council with the opportunity to both recognise and thank our many local volunteers for their positive contribution to the local community.”


“It is the ongoing efforts of the area’s volunteers that makes the Shoalhaven such a charitable, welcoming and enjoyable place in which to live.”
