In 2009 Margaret was awarded life membership — alongside Patricia Simmons — in recognition for all of the work she has undertaken within and for the guild at every opportunity. Margaret personifies the aims and objectives of the guild and is a very worthy recipient of this award.
2008 Fay Gardner Achievement Award
Bestowed December 2008
Margaret Tesoriero is a founding member of the guild and has been a constant inspiration to all members since then. Officially, Margaret held the position of branch president from 1993 to 1994, and again from 2001 to 2006.
Since 2006, Margaret has held a general committee position within the branch but has also concurrently held a general committee position on the state committee from 2006 to 2012.
Her wonderful approach to the guild and its ethos is demonstrated through her actions and was duly rewarded with Margaret being awarded a Sydney life member from 2010.
Margaret’s zest for life has been demonstrated through her generous fun loving spirit at any guild function — branch meetings, seminars, social gatherings. Her diligent approach has been well placed more recently in her position of state rostered day demonstrations — even offering her own services when no other demonstrator was available.
It is with great pleasure that we announce that Margaret has been awarded the 2008 Fay Gardner Achievement Award. Congratulations.
