The extraordinary contribution of Tim Gething to the Nabiac community was recognised at a special morning tea on Tuesday, February 13.
Tim has held the position of treasurer of the Nabiac memorial neighbourhood centre for 14 years, overseeing the finances of the second chance op shop, the swimming pool and skate park funds and the futures group.
As treasurer, Tim implemented some much needed financial advancement through improved accounting systems and reporting.
He also obtained charity status for the neighbourhood centre.
The key purpose of the morning tea was to celebrate and recognise Tim’s contribution to the community technology centre (CTC).
Well done Tim, and, as always, thank you, thank you, thank you.- Kit Carson
Tim was instrumental in the establishment of the CTC and has been heavily involved in its operations ever since.
Bringing decades of experience in the computer industry, Tim ran various educational programs, weekly seniors classes and provided assistance with technical issues.
Tim has also maintained the Nabiac website, which hosts general directory material for Nabiac as well as for the sites for the Wallamba show and Nabiac farmers’ markets.
Tim has had to scale down his involvement with both the neighbourhood centre and the CTC due to health problems, however his passion and dedication to furthering these local causes remains unchanged.
Around 30 CTC regulars, op shop volunteers, committee members and other locals enjoyed a terrific ‘high tea’ spread prepared by the Green House Cafe.
There was a special unveiling of the ‘Tim Gething community technology centre’, followed by a toast, celebrating Tim with a glass of bubbles, courtesy of Bruce Weller from the futures group.
Neighbourhood centre president, Kit Carson summed it up nicely with “Well done Tim, and, as always, thank you, thank you, thank you.”
