On August 8, the Friends of the Library (FOL) held its AGM and was pleased to see a new member in attendance and two join a week earlier.
Gemma Priest was elected as Secretary to fill the vacancy.
Ann Hughes retired from the position after 11 years, but will continue as Treasurer.
At the conclusion of this meeting, President Peggy Bennett announced that the first Life Membership would be awarded to founding member, Sue Job after serving 27 years.
Her contribution has been significant as was covered in detail on the citation read by President Peggy.
Sue served in office positions, on the committee, catering activities, has been the FOL representative and the list goes on.
Sue has excellent negotiating skills which have been in regular demand over the years.
It was a fitting and timely for Sue’s contribution to the Friends be recognised with the first Life Membership award.
As the award was quite unexpected, Sue was overwhelmed by all the attention as she received the framed citation, badge and floral arrangement.
Sue continues to serve as a valuable member who has earned much respect from both past and present members.
