Congratulations to Ruth Porter, who was awarded SAA Junior Volunteer of the Year at the SAA AGM in
Perth on November 29. This is a new award, instigated by the SAA in conjunction with a senior
award, and a coaches award. In announcing Ruth as the recipient, Victoria Barby (SAA Director
of Communications) read from the nominations submitted by Brenda and the committee, which
praised Ruth for her readiness to help in many different capacities, whether selling raffle tickets or
sweeping the floor. If it was possible for us to have nominated Judith and Ted (Ruths parents) for
an award we would have done so, as their help at so many club events is invaluable.
