Margaret Sheaves looked a little surprised when over 40 guests and friends gathered to celebrate her 80th birthday. Pinning a life membership badge onto her scarf, Jack Dickenson made a speech about her 25 years of service to the museum. Jenny Drenkhahn stepped up, presenting her with a lovely bunch of blooms and her certificate.
With great passion she works as a volunteer for Meals on Wheels, View, the Eden Singers, SEHGI and the Australia Day Committee. Her fun way of chairing our friends meetings is always memorable.
A pearl beyond price, her hand is constantly raised to help out at the museum.
Joining the Eden singers in a rendition of “Margretta Tread the Grapes with Me” we chuckled as, on her second go at blowing out the candles on her cake, she shared her wish of living on to 100. A keen bush walker and swimmer we all believe she has a good chance of getting there!
