Margaret MacDonald OAM
The ANGAIR Committee of Management is delighted to announce the election of Margaret MacDonald OAM, to Honorary Life Member of ANGAIR.
The citation reads: ‘In recognition of her outstanding contribution to ANGAIR, for her inspiring leadership and tireless work over many years, and for sharing her knowledge and her love of the flora and fauna of the Anglesea and Aireys Inlet district.”
How fortunate we are that Margaret decided to live in the unique natural environment of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet. Her love for the area began as small child, when, for a few years, her family spent two weeks of the summer holidays, staying at Filkins’ guest house in Anglesea. This interest was reawakened and extended later, when she led Girl Guide camps at Tallawalla Moggs Creek, and, of course, came into its own when she chose Moggs Creek as the place to spend her retirement.
Evelyn Jones has been a member for many years and continues to work constantly for the Committee. She has been secretary, newsletter editor, member of various sub-committees, weeder, worker at the Wildflower Show – the list goes on and on....
Judy Barker is also a long-time member who has been propagating indigenous plants for many years, and helped our Propagating Group to become established. She sold her plants at the Wildflower Show for many years and gave all the money to ANGAIR. She now assists with the Propagating Group stall and with the indigenous plants etc.
