MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 29, 2009 7 AUSTRALIA DAY AWARDS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Committed to the grassroots SHIREEN KHALIL Geoffrey David Boyce is Strathfield's Citizen of the Year. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP237572 ON Australia Day long-time Strathfield resident Geoffrey David Boyce was awarded the Strathfield Citizen of the Year. Mr Boyce, who has a long list of community achievements, didn't think his commitment would pay off in such an honoured way. ''I didn't expect it at all. It was completely out of the blue and in many ways I felt many people are deserving of it and I never expected my effort would come in a reward of something like this,'' Mr Boyce said. A member and chairman of Strathfield Council's Olympic Initiatives Committee Mr Boyce was also vice-president of the Strathfield Croquet Club, a former member of the Strathfield Rotary Club and an active member and elder of the Strathfield Uniting Church. For eight years Mr Boyce has been working at a newsagency in Strathfield Plaza. ''This award is a great honour and I'm very happy and proud,'' he said. Santa Sabina College student Jamal Kayrouz was named the Strathfield Young Citizen of the Year. Jamal, who participated in the UNICEF Youth Forum 2008, won 11 awards at her Year 10 graduation ceremony, with eight of the awards for coming first in her subject areas. She is also an active member of St Joseph's Maronite Church and took part in the Christian function for International Day for People with a Disability. World-class role model FIONA BRADY Gary Grienke is Ashfield's Citizen of the Year. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP237548 AN inspiring community worker who runs the local Men's Shed has been chosen as Ashfield Council's 2009 Citizen of the Year. Gary Grienke, 57, of Ashfield, said he was surprised and honoured by the award, which was presented to him at an Aust- ralia Day ceremony. The Ashfield Men's Shed is a social outlet for the 40 retired or semi-retired members who work with their hands making and repairing things. One of their most successful projects has been making small wheelchairs out of old bicycle frames for child landmine victims. And for his efforts co-ordinating the construction of more than 600,000 small wooden crosses for World Youth Day, Mr Grienke was awarded one of only five papal World Youth Day medallions. ''I get as much satisfaction out of it as they (the members) do,'' he said. Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy described Mr Grienke as ''an ex- cellent role model'' whose ''local efforts have international merit''. Ashfield's Young Citizen of the Year is Elizabeth Mora of Bethlehem College. As well as excelling academi- cally and in the arts, Elizabeth is involved in the St Vincent de Paul Night Patrol and the Smith Family Home Reading Program. Ashbury swimmer Kenneth To is the Young Sportsperson of the Year and the Young Artist of the Year is Yang-En Hume.
