August 24, 2011
Shoalhaven City Council West Street Oval Management Committee member, Sharen Balazic has received the AFL NSW/ACT Volunteer of the Year Award.
Ms Balazic receives the award after 16 years service to the development of junior AFL on the South Coast.
Having become involved in the sport when her son started playing in 1995 Ms Balazic has since served as Chair of the South Coast AFL Junior Committee, Board Member of the South Coast AFL and Nowra Blues Junior Committee member.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Paul Green congratulated Ms Balazic on winning the AFL NSW/ACT Volunteer of the Year Award saying it was fitting recognition for her dedication and commitment to South Coast AFL.
Councillor Green said many local sporting organisations would cease to exist without the dedication and hard work of local volunteers.
“The Shoalhaven has a very loyal and dedicated volunteer base covering many different facets of community life,” said Clr Green.
“I would like to congratulate Ms Balazic on receiving this prestigious award and thank her for her ongoing commitment to sport within the Shoalhaven.
“It is very inspiring and exciting to see one of Council’s Management Committee members honoured for her ongoing contribution to local sport.”
