After 15 years with the HumSoc NSW committee, at different times as Editor, President, Hon Secretary, Convenor of several events such as Australis 2000 , CAHS Conventions, End of Year Party 2014 with entertainer Sam Pellegrino, and as HSNSW delegate to UNAANSW initiating the partnership event of
UN International Women’s Day which began with Waratah Gillespie’s (right) experience in Bougainville and ended 5 years later with The Hon Jillian Skinner MP and which was my final event in March this year (2015) therefore ending my involvement with both committees. The tulips, a lovely farewell gesture from Hum Soc NSW and the roses were presented to me at UNIWDAY by UNAANSW past President Valerie Weekes whose support for the 5 years has been invaluable. It was also memorable having Robyn Carroll (right) Indigenous Community Worker from Walla Mulla Family and Community Support Woolloomooloo carry out the Acknowledgement to Country and to speak about Indigenous Women’s issues. Every year this event has taken place in Sydney State Parliament House gratis for which we are extremely grateful and proud. The Afternoon tea was delicious croissants with coffee or tea.
