Those volunteers achieving 15 years’ service were recognised with life membership status in 2014. More than a quarter of our active volunteers are Life Members. His Excellency presented special service awards to those celebrating 40, 50 and 60 year milestones. Volunteer efforts were recognised in the same year that MoWSA reaches a milestone of its own
“Our annual Awardee Day is an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of our inspiring volunteers,” she said. “It is another opportunity for us to come together and pay tribute to their dedication, support and admirable work they continue to do in local communities across the State. “Without the help of volunteers, Meals on Wheels wouldn’t be possible. In addition to preparing and or delivering a delicious nourishing three-course meal, our volunteers offer a friendly smile, social contact and a check that clients are “Safe & Well”. “They are the driving force behind our service, and as MoWSA continues to move forward during its 60th year, we hope to continue to play an integral part of communities across SA.
