Mary was pivotal in raising the profile of the centre in her role as Booking Officer, but went far beyond her duties in that role. Her energy, enthusiasm and sheer hard work made a positive impact on the Centre and influenced all who worked with her and knew her. Her vision greatly contributed to the culture of our community. She will be sorely missed by everyone.
