Bryan Mulquiney, a volunteer with Goulburn Mulwaree Council, has won the 2020 Senior Volunteer of the Year Award at the Southern Inland Regional Award Ceremony of the NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards held on October 8.
Over 118,000 nominations were received across the state this year on the awards. The awards have been running for 14 years by The Centre for Volunteering.
He has been invited to attend the NSW State Gala Award Ceremony in December.
His consistent dedication to performance excellence can be demonstrated by the volunteer work he carries out at the Goulburn Historic Waterworks two days a week.
He is also willing to assist whenever needed at our other museum - Rocky Hill War Memorial and Museum. Mr Mulquiney works tirelessly doing grounds work, maintenance, minor construction work, rubbish collection, gardening and steam engine preparation in readiness for our open "steaming" days.
