Guiseppe 'Joe' Martello has received a Meritorious Service to the Community Award for his work with Kyabram Bocce Club.
The work of former Kyabram Bocce Club president Giuseppe Martello has been recognised through a Meritorious Service to the Community Award.
Mr Martello, known by most as ‘Joe’, was recognised for his outstanding achievements as a community individual.
He was presented with the award by Victorian Governor Alex Chernov at a ceremony held at Government House in Melbourne, during which he also met Premier Ted Baillieu.
‘‘I was very surprised when I received the letter to tell me I was getting an award,’’ Mr Martello said.
‘‘It’s something you don’t expect. I just did my best to try to keep improving the club and there was a lot of hard work.’’
Nominees had to have completed a minimum of 10 years’ voluntary service at a governance level.
Mr Martello has served as president of Kyabram Bocce Club for two separate periods, and also vice president and as a committee member.
He was also the man behind the establishment of the North East Bocce Association, which he said had been very good for the sport in the area, and the formation of the Italian Seniors Group.
He has assisted as a volunteer since the club started in 1974 and continues to serve on the committee and is also a NEBA representative.
