|Ngaire Glover is farewelled by the Derwent Valley Online
Access Centre’s assistant co-ordinator Michael Kitchener.
THE longest-serving volunteer at the Derwent Valley Online Access Centre has called it a day after more than 15 years of service.
Not only had Ngaire Glover been a volunteer since the centre’s opening in December 2000, she had also served on the steering committee formed in November 1998 to obtain the necessary funding to establish the centre.
Co-located with the New Norfolk Library in Charles St, the Derwent Valley Online Access Centre was the 61st established under the Tasmanian Communities Online initiative to provide public access to computers and the internet, as well as basic training in various applications. The network eventually grew to 66, mostly in rural and regional areas.
As well as being part of the centre’s management committee for a number of years, Mrs Glover’s contribution included staffing the centre on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings for most of the last 15 years.
Thank you Ngaire for your outstanding contribution to the community.
