Community Recognition - Seniors Awards 2024

14 March, 2024.

I've received so many worthy nominations for the Seniors Week Awards, and would like to take the opportunity to celebrate some of the outstanding individuals we are lucky to have in our community. Retired school teacher Colleen Cunningham is currently the International Officer of the Picton CWA, is a Special Religious Education volunteer and a member of the Nangaran Landcare Group. An active member of the Bargo History Group, Colleen assists with research and is an administrator on The Bargo History Group Facebook Page. Shonagh Moore, at 85 years young, epitomizes community engagement through her monthly singalongs at Mittagong Uniting Church, fostering social connection and active participation among the seniors and disability groups that attends. Her weekly knitting group, "Knitting for others," donates handmade items to aged care facilities and organizations like the Flying Doctors. John Bicknell is a published author, poet, and community advocate. As a youth mentor at Picton High School, volunteer firefighter, and historian, John's commitment to community welfare and engagement is unwavering. Well done Wollondilly nominees, you are an inspiration to us all.
