She has also helped with other roles on a general committee.

Club representatives described how Karen provides the equivalent hours of a part-time job in working for the club.

She is in charge of membership as well as finances for the club that operates 12 months of the year across four different sports – football, netball, cricket and hockey.

The club submission: “This adds extra complexities to Karen’s role that she always takes within her stride. She is always willing to lend a hand and we are very fortunate to have her at the NDSC. Karen is a club life-member, which reflects all of her hard work over many, many years. It is people like her that allow all of our clubs to survive and prosper.”

Karen joins monthly award winners Nathan Martin, Horsham Saints, and Ararat’s Jenny Dunn.

Wimmera league will announce five monthly winners during the season and invite them to a Toohey and Hatcher medal presentation night, where officials will announce ‘volunteer of the year’.

Morrow Motor Group is sponsoring the award, providing $100 for monthly winners and $500 for the overall winner.

People can email nominations to including a brief outline of the person’s contribution to their club, as well as a photograph.
