2012 Life Member

Margaret MacDonald OAM

The Angair Committee of Management is delighted to  announce  the election of Margaret MacDonald OAM, to  Honorary Life Member of Angair.

The citation reads: ‘In recognition of her outstanding contribution to Angair, for her inspiring leadership and tireless work over many years, and for sharing her knowledge and her love of the flora and fauna of the Anglesea and Aireys Inlet district.”

How fortunate we are that Margaret decided to live in the unique natural environment of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet. Her love for the area began as small child, when, for a few years, her family spent two weeks of the summer holidays, staying at Filkins’ guest house in Anglesea. This interest was reawakened and extended later, when she led Girl Guide camps at Tallawalla Moggs Creek, and, of course, came into its own when she chose Moggs Creek as the place to spend her retirement.

New life members in 2011

Kaye and Mike Trayor have both been great workers for Angair over many years. Kaye is best known for her beautiful fauna illustrations in the newsletter every month, and Mike for his amazing knowledge of the fauna of the area. They led the monthly bird walks until the start of this year, and helped many of us to identify and learn about the local birds. Fortunately for us, they will continue with their contributions to the newsletter, and answering questions about the local fauna.
