Marcia Maybury

Quota International of Cessnock, NSW

Marcia Maybury is someone who makes her fellow club members proud. She is one of her clubs most dedicated and hard-working members. Marcia is the first to volunteer her time (and her family’s time) to support club projects. A very caring person, she regularly keeps in touch with members who are ill or in need of comfort. She has served two terms as president and acted as a club delegate at district conferences and at an area meeting. Through Quota International, Marcia has worked tirelessly as a fund-raiser for hospitals, ambulance service, cancer research, and hearing-impaired persons. Outside of Quota, Marcia also volunteers in many capacities. For 10 years, she has been secretary of the Astronomical Society of the Hunter. For eight years, she has been secretary of Kurri Kurri Landcare, an association dedicated to the repair and rehabilitation of damaged streams, forests, and lands. In addition, Marcia is active in Towns with Heart, a committee that is improving the streetscape of Kurri Kurri. In her family life, Marcia is equally busy, having raised eight children, she is now a grandmother. She shares an interest in music with her sons and is also a fine artist. This year the Cessnock Quota club nominated Marcia for the City of Cessnock Australia Day Award. She was chosen to receive the top honor, Citizen of the Year. She was honored at a spectacular civic function on Australia Day before a capacity crowd. Because her club sees Marcia as a shining example of all that is good, honest, and true, they believe she is also a wonderful choice for their Volunteer of the Year.
