Conargo Citizen of the Year Lyn Hardcastle, Conargo Shire Mayor Norm Brennan and Young Citizen of the Year Emma McCrabb.
A main contributor to the Conargo Shire, Lyn Hardcastle was the recipient of the Citizen of the Year.
Mrs Hardcastle said she was ‘‘lost for words’’ after receiving confirmation that she had won the award.
‘‘And those who know me know that very seldom happens,’’ she said.
‘‘I’m just a small part of the community and it is because of these people the town is moving forward.
‘‘Its great to be a part of the Conargo community.”
Mrs Hardcastle and her husband Alan permanently moved to Conargo in 1999, after stints in Melbourne and Sydney.
Since that time she has strived to make Conargo a bustling community, being involved in a number of events throughout the shire.
Since moving to Conargo, Mrs Hardcastle has remained honorary secretary of the Conargo Hall Committee.
Her contribution to the town includes the extremely successful Mother’s Day Market, which involves work that spans over the whole year and running the Friday night raffles at the local hotel.
Conargo Shire Mayor Norm Brennan said Lyn is ‘‘always one to help in any activity that this community has’’.
‘‘In many ways Lyn’s constant enthusiasm is a constant reminder of who pull their weight in this small community,’’ he said.
‘‘Lyn’s nomination form made this observation – Lyn’s attitude to work is like a little fox terrier dog, when she gets on the track of something she will not let go until it is finished’’.
