As part of Volunteer Week, The Shire of Murray has awarded a Certificate of Appreciation to volunteers who have reached a 10 year or 20 year milestone, recognising the valuable contribution of longstanding volunteers within community organisations.

Local sporting clubs and community groups were encouraged to nominate exceptional volunteers in the Shire of Murray for the 2018 Volunteer Awards.

Now in its 51st year since it received its charter, the Rotary Club of Pinjarra was pleased to nominate 9 long-serving members to be recognised for their longstanding commitment to live up to the Rotary motto “Service above Self”.  The Club has provided funding that has been used to benefit many of the residents of the Shire of Murray. The beneficiaries have included such establishments as Bedingfeld Aged Care Facility and Fairbridge Village, as well as individual academic prizes for students attending the schools within the Shire. More recently, the Club has hosted a Community Mental Health Forum, gifted an “Avenue of Trees” (which adorns the southern approach to Pinjarra) to the community, and was intimately involved in the delivery of aid in the wake of the Yarloop Bushfire event.
