2016 Annual Report - Page 20

Projects and Information Marion Lester and the Triple A Foundation Marion commenced at CSF in 1998 as the Community Internet Coordinator. In 2001 she moved to the Special Projects Coordinator role where her responsibilities spanned a wide range of duties involving administration, publications, computers and marketing. Marion has a background in photography, graphic design and computer-assisted learning and she applied all these skills to her work at CSF. Notable among Marion’s achievements have been design and editing of annual reports; co-ordination of the annual Frankston Community Appeal; design and publication of information brochures; development and support of websites, social media and Intranet; and supervision of volunteers working with Marion on these activities. 20 The part-time Special Projects Coordinator position was funded, in full or part, by the Triple A Foundation, a philanthropic organisation founded by Barrie Thomas who has maintained an association with CSF since 1992. Triple A Foundation funding ceased on 30 November 2015. CSF gratefully acknowledges the contributions of Marion and the Triple A Foundation. Marion’s commitment and professionalism, enabled by generosity of funding by Barrie Thomas, allowed CSF to create and deliver many programs and projects which have contributed significantly to the positive perception of CSF and wellbeing of Frankston residents. Although funding for Marion’s position ceased on 30 November 2015, Marion has maintained her association with CSF as a volunteer and continues to contribute to functions she previously performed as Special Projects Coordinator. Thank you, Marion, for your many years of dedicated and outstanding service to CSF, and for your ongoing excellent contributions as a volunteer. The measure of a community is how it treats its most vulnerable members
