Pam honoured for 25 years of service
11th April 2018
Mr GREG PIPER ( Lake Macquarie ) ( 13:20 ): I acknowledge the remarkable service to the Lake Macquarie community by Pam Cammareri. Pam has been volunteering at Morisset and Toronto Meals on Wheels for 25 years, which is an extraordinary effort. As I have said many times, volunteers are the backbone of our local communities and are absolutely vital to the survival of many community services. Last year alone Morisset and Toronto Meals on Wheels delivered more than 35,000 meals to those in the local community who needed them. All up more than 44,000 items were received, packed and delivered through the Morisset and Toronto kitchens. In more recent years Pam has worked as a kitchen supervisor in the Morisset kitchen where she has managed a small team. She is greatly respected by everyone around her and has adapted to significant change over the 25 years she has served as a volunteer. I note that Pam's efforts were recently acknowledged in the Premier's Volunteer Recognition Program. I am very pleased to be able to further recognise her milestone in the Parliament.
