Outstanding citizen nominated for Noosa Queensland Day Award
THE Noosa Queensland Day Awards are all about honouring inspirational locals.
As the nomination deadline of May 20 nears, it's time to meet the first of those nominated to be honoured.
Stan Quin is a treasured member of the Rotary Club of Noosa.
He and his wife Leonie help raise funds locally and overseas, and have travelled to India and other parts of Asia to assist in delivering services to the less fortunate.
Stan and Leonie have also welcomed many exchange students into their home in Noosa and have showcased our amazing part of the world while teaching them English.
Stan has held many executive positions during his 41 years in Rotary and his advancing years haven't slowed him down at all.
You will often find him at a fundraising sausage sizzle at Bunnings or helping out at the Eumundi Markets car park.
Many locals are aware of the Rotary Youth Driver Awareness program held at the House With No Steps at Doonan, where thousands of Year 11 students are taught driver awareness before getting their driver's licence.
The program has become a passion for Stan and he's ready for another big year with it this year.
Legacy is also one of Stan's passions as he raises money selling poppies and pins for war widows and families in need each year.
If you would like to share what makes a volunteer special in the eyes of your club or organisation, nominate them for the awards as part of the Noosa Electorate Queensland Day Ceremony, to be held this year at The J on June 6.
