Jeanette Holland

Quota International of Taree, NSW

Jeanette Holland has been an active member of Quota International of Taree for over 30 years. She has served in all board positions, including the office of president four times, and she is a past district governor. Passionate about Quota and community service, Jeanette is involved in many community organizations. She has held various positions over many years, such as those in the National Anglican Women of Australia, Girl Guides, Meals on Wheels, and Taree Lipreading Association (now run by Better Hearing). She is currently organizing the Dame Joan Sutherland Luncheon Musicale, where she represents her club as director of Community Involvement. This is part of the Taree City Festival, an annual event involving a two-week program. Jeanette also serves on the Australia Day Committee. The chief organizer of the Taree club’s Bridal Spectacular since its inception, Jeanette is responsible for the huge fund-raiser, which is an annual event now in its twelfth year. During 2003, Jeanette was very involved in her club’s successful, ongoing “Butterfly” campaign—butterfly brooches are for sale and also butterfly correspondence cards, which are designed locally by school children. During Quota Cares Month, she organized a highly successful picnic for all of the deaf and hearing-impaired members of our community. Jeanette’s ongoing involvement in so many community activities combined with her passion for Quota helped raise community awareness. Her club describes Jeanette as “embodying the true meaning of volunteering,” and they proudly acknowledge her as their Volunteer of the Year.
