The volunteer of the Year in 2013 was Joan Lawson who has been with Peninsula RDA for five years. Joan was presented with a Volunteer of the Year Badge.
Joan helps on Tuesdays, and plays an important part in organising the Flinders Golf Club Charity Day in October of which the Golf Club donates all the profits to RDA Peninsula. For this Joan dresses up in the Smiley Horse Costume for the day and stands outside at one of the holes on the course!! This provides RDA with our greatest sponsorship each year. We are greatly indebted to Joan and the Flinders Golf Club for their generosity.
