Congratulations to Logan Wesleyan Methodist Church member Robin Gallen who received the Order of Australia Medal in the Australia Day honours list.
Robin Louise Gallen OAM (née Bates/Mitchell). For service to community health.
“Thank you to my family and friends who have already read the paper and posted. Receiving this award is both humbling and gratifying and it does provide me with the opportunity to reflect on the diversity of experiences, in both my professional life and retirement years. I am a proud Australian and the happiest resident of Logan City. I spent my first 50 years in N.S.W before the family decided to move to Queensland in 1988. I am happy to share the values and beliefs that underpin the joy of my everyday life:
I alone can not stop wars and starvation; but
I can live in unity, harmony and peace, within my self and with my neighbours.
I can nurture and nourish my family and friends.
I can live with faith, hope, love and reach out to others to enrich my community.
I can live my life with enthusiasm and purpose.
I can accept the challenges and setbacks in my life with courage and without regret; and accept rewards with gratitude.
I thank my own family, my friends and my Logan Wesleyan Methodist Church family. May God bless us all. ”
Robin L Gallen OAM.
