Federal Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie has honoured the service of one of the region’s longest serving community groups, with Quota International of Taree celebrating its 70th anniversary.
Dr Gillespie was joined by State MP Stephen Bromhead and newly elected MidCoast Council mayor David West to personally congratulate the organisation at the Combined Manning Valley Service Clubs and Community Groups Dinner at Club Taree.
“Quota International of Taree is part of the fabric of the local community and their enduring support for those who need it most is worthy of great recognition,” Dr Gillespie said.
“Unfortunately there are people in our communities who need our help and to know there are volunteers such as the Quota group who are prepared to sacrifice their time and effort is of great comfort to many people.”
Quota International is a not-for-profit service organisation which seeks to create projects that impact local communities.
Quotarians are especially known for their service to the deaf, hard-of-hearing and speech-impaired individuals, as well as disadvantaged women and children.
