Community Service Award Recipient
With boundless generosity forged by a love for the Clyde community, Carol Haig’s selfless commitment to `get involved’ is inspirational.
Everything she does is for the community, for children and for Clyde. Carol wants the best for her town and its people, never seeking her own reward.
With endless energy and enthusiasm, Carol lends a hand in big and small ways.
The breadth and passion of her community involvement spans 40 years. It includes key roles in the Clyde Volunteer Fire Brigade, Clyde Theatre Group (she is a life member), Clyde Memorial Hall committee, Promote Dunstan, Clyde Playcentre, Clyde School, Clyde Historical Museums and the Clyde Community Development Group.
In her voluntary contributions, Carol supports others in a positive way, recognising opportunities for their development and involvement. Understanding what her community needs, she collaborates to get things done in a cooperative and efficient way.
Over the years Carol has also provided personal support for those in need, sometimes in life-changing ways.
Carol’s great-great grandparents settled in Clyde in 1865—she understands and teaches the importance of generations cherishing and preserving the past. Carol’s own story is a remarkable, continuing tale of enthusiastic participation, encouragement of others and incredible pride in her community.
