Bobby Connelly (nee Searle)
It has been said that community building is an ongoing process where members of a community share skills, talents, knowledge and experiences that strengthen and enrich. Bobby Connelly's lifelong commitment to volunteering and community service has taken many forms including economic, environmental and social.
The many organisations she has assisted and developed relationships with including Oakey Chamber of Commerce, Urban Landcare, Meals on Wheels, Rotary Club, the Jondaryan Shire Community Centre, Queensland Country Women's Association and Neighbourhood Watch, attest to the breadth of her engagement in her local community.
These highly desirable attributes and a life of service have been well recognised in Bobby Connelly's local community. In the recent past the state government awarded Bobby the Queensland Premier's Award for Senior Community Service. In January 2003 the federal government bestowed the Order of Australia Medal to her for service worthy of particular recognition.
Bobby was awarded the Moreton Bay College Medal in 2005.
