Pam Hamory awarded Order of Australia Medal

Red Cross champion and all-round “extraordinary Australian” Pamela Hamory has been named awarded an OAM adding to her recognition as Eurobodalla’s Local Hero in 2021.

Pam has been described as someone who had made a remarkable contribution over five decades of unpaid voluntary work, which started at school and continues well into her retirement.

With a history too long to list, Pam’s volunteer work includes 25 years with the Australian Red Cross, a volunteer fire fighter from 1974 till 2002, roles in local radio, the Australasian Alpaca Breeders Association, the Eurobodalla District Show, Eurobodalla Amateur Bee-Keepers and the Gourmet Gardeners Group, as well as founder and leader of Eurobodalla Spinners and Weavers founder and even croquet coach.

Her earlier volunteer work included serving meals to the homeless in Kings Cross, ecology and environment work, health work, and sports development for students.

When Pam accepted the award of Eurobodalla’s Local Hero in 2021 at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden she praised the other nominees for their contributions.

“I’m only a little person in a big wheel, hoping to help push it along,” she said.

She spoke of the shire’s recovery from fire, flood and pandemic and said the Red Cross had “been there through it all”. Anyone can nominate another Australian for an Order of Australia appointment by visiting
