Community service is a shared commitment and vision too. Colin has been involved with Rotary since 1978 in clubs in Moss Vale and Sydney. Colin is a past Rotary President and is also honoured to have been awarded a Paul Harris Fellow, receiving that prestigious Rotary Award for his services to the community.
Embracing many aspects of community service, Colin has provided support working with repatriation cases in Phuket following the Tsunami in December 2004; Laurelle has served on the Committee of the Lady Mayoress Relief Fund, Sydney Town Hall- raising money for Sydney charities.
Since 2003 they have both contributed their energies here in the Southern Highlands on a range of charitable or support programmes including many major Rotary projects that have brought enhanced care and services to those in need as well as educational and support programmes for carers.
Enthusiasm and involvement are two words that keep cropping up in relation to any activity that is undertaken – after all, Colin became a member of the NSW Scottish Regimental Association at age 17 years and is as enthusiastic at all ceremonial occasions today! Whilst Laurelle is an active committee member of the A. H. & I Show Society Moss Vale.
