Tongala Senior Citizens Club has presented Margaret Fuller with a Life Membership Certificate.
Tongala resident Margaret Fuller has been awarded life membership of Tongala Senior Citizens Club.
Mrs Fuller has been an active member of the club for about 12 years and has held the position of club treasurer for the last 10 years.
‘‘I was kind of volunteered for the job and that’s been my position ever since,’’ she said.
‘‘Around that time somebody also volunteered me to be in charge of fundraising for the club and that role has continued as well.
‘‘I’d never sold a raffle ticket in my life before that.’’
As the club is privately run, she said the treasurer’s role could be quite busy and it meant she got involved with a range of tasks to keep things running.
Mrs Fuller said she has made some great friends through the club and the friendships were the most rewarding aspect of her involvement.
‘‘The friendships can be a bit ageing at times when some of the younger members, those in their fifties, tell you that you remind them of their parents or grandparents,’’ she said.
‘‘You seem to get involved in other people’s lives and there’s always someone who needs a bit of help.’’
Mrs Fuller was presented with her Life Member Certificate at the club’s Christmas break-up event.
‘‘Getting the life membership was really unexpected. You’re just doing your job,’’ she said.
She enjoys the club’s outings and plans to continue in her roles.
The Fuller household now has two Tongala Senior Citizens Club life members as Margaret’s husband of 61 years Stan, the club’s secretary, was awarded life membership in 2009.
