President Meg Adams

President of U3A Hawthorn, Meg Adams, was announced as Boroondara Council's Citizen of the Year for 2015 - jointly with Ian Penrose, who recently retired as the Yarra Riverkeeper and has previously been a speaker at our Summer School.

As members may know, Meg is a Board member of Camcare, which helps disadvantaged people throughout Boroondara, and has been instrumental in its successful advocacy and funding for its important projects.

Meg has been a long time contributor at U3A Hawthorn having held a number of roles, including Office Manager and Newsletter Editor, prior to her appointment as President in 2014.

Her work with Camcare and with U3A Hawthorn was recognised in the announcement of this award and we congratulate her on her achievement.

U3A Hawthorn was one of the first U3As in Victoria, having been formed in November 1984, with classes commencing Term 1 1985.
