What is your role on the Byron Community Centre Board? My job is to work together with the Board and guide the organisation to meet its objectives. I have been on other committees before and helped make decisions on property and finances for a women's shelter and a scout’s group.
What is the most inspiring part of your role? I find a lot of satisfaction spending time supporting local community organisations and contributing to bettering the lives of others that use the services.
I love my community because…People here are connected to the magnificent environment that surrounds us, and to each other. I am inspired by the respect, love and care I witness here everyday.
