Ms CORCORAN (1:54 PM) —The week before last I had the privilege of presenting a number of people in my electorate with awards as part of the National Day for Older Australians. Barbara Round has been the secretary of the Parkdale Women’s Club for many years. Her hard work and administrative skills are greatly appreciated. Cassie Morrison is the extremely hardworking president of the Parkdale-Mordialloc Combined Pensioners Association. She looks after all of the members, which includes visiting those who are sick, whether they are at home or in hospital. Gwen Warner has been secretary of the Parkglen Retirement Community social committee for the last four years. She organises monthly lunches and dinners as well as theatre parties and other outings. Joan Crabbe has been a member of the Parkdale Senior Citizens Club for over 20 years and has held various offices within that club. Linda Wolfe is Treasurer of the Keysborough senior citizens club, an active member of the Waverley Gardens probus club and a member of Wellsprings for Women. Nora Burridge is vice-president of the Keysborough senior citizens club. She works daily in the office and at functions. Rose Salmon has been president of the Life Activities Club at Long Beach, Chelsea, for 10 years. She has been editor of the club news-sheet for the last eight years. Pat Holmes—who is not well at the moment; we wish her all the best—is a member of the Kingston University of the Third Age. Theo Ioannou has served as an executive member of the Australian Cyprian Social and Sports Association of the southern suburbs for the last 15 years.
