Stephanie Hancock receives inaugural Margaret Saker Volunteer of the Year Award

Stephanie Hancock is the first Quotarian to receive the Margaret Saker OAM Volunteer of the Year award.

Margaret Saker, a much-loved Narooma resident and member of Quota for over 29 years, passed away in June 2020. Quota Club Narooma created the award in her honour.

“Without Marg’s steadfastness there likely would not have been a club at all,” says current president Sue Fahey, who came up with the idea. “The award is presented annually to a member of our club who has demonstrated outstanding service, just as Marg did.”

Since joining Quota Club Narooma in March 2020, Stephanie Hancock has demonstrated a willingness to get involved in all aspects of the organisation. She was elected vice-president in October 2020 and has been the mentor to new members since that time. She is always one of the first to put up her hand to volunteer for activities and events.

The award itself is a handcrafted wooden plaque that incorporates a medallion of Wanda Frey Joiner, who started Quota as a service club for women in Buffalo, New York, in 1919.

At Quota Club Narooma's Christmas party on Saturday, Past President Chris Ryder presented Stephanie Hancock with the Margaret Saker OAM Volunteer of the Year award, The award was created to honour former Quotarian Margaret Saker.
