Two prominent members of Moyola Aged Care have new and exciting directions in their lives.December 18, 2013 4:36am
Executive services manager Polly Devine said after prolonged consideration, James Simson and Barry Lierich had made the decision to retire from the committee of management of Moyola Aged Care.
Ms Devine said they would be sorely missed; not only for their relentless pursuit for the success of Moyola Aged Care, but for their contributions in all areas of building the future of Moyola Aged Care.
‘‘James Simson volunteered 35 years of service to Moyola. He was a founding member who with members of the Tatura Apex Club helped realise a dream to build a not-for-profit facility that would and will cater for our aging community over many generations to come,’’ she said.
‘‘Realising change and promoting growth and development have been integral strengths of James.’’
Ms Devine said Barry Lierich had volunteered 22 years to the growth and ongoing success of Moyola Aged Care.
‘‘Barry saw what could be and with the confidence of the committee of management has continued to guide our financial stability,’’ she said.
‘‘Barry was seconded to this role on his arrival to Tatura. He has embraced the role with passion and fortitude. This commitment has meant that Moyola Aged Care has been able to grow and prosper.
‘‘As a committee of management we are sorry to farewell these two exemplary members.
‘‘We know Moyola Aged Care will continue to flourish because of what both James and Barry have contributed. They have been part of a very well-oiled team.’’
Ms Devine said all at Moyola wished them well with their new directions, and knew that along with the members of the committee of management, the Tatura community thanked them for all they had done to promote Moyola Aged Care.
