Member for Baulkham Hills, David Elliott, was appointed as Patron of the Baulkham Hills Girl Guides at the Annual General Meeting on Monday.
Mr Elliott said he was honoured to be considered for the role.
“The work put in by volunteer leaders is of enormous value to our community,” Mr Elliott said.
“So many organizations would cease to exist without the work of our volunteers, and I am delighted to be asked to be Patron of an organisation built on the backs of volunteers.”
Mr Elliott said that Baulkham Hills Girl Guides provided a valuable service for the community while also developing tomorrow’s community leaders.
“Guides offers a fantastic opportunity for young girls to make friends and experience the outdoors, while also learning the necessary qualities for taking leadership roles in our community in the future.
“I would encourage all girls to join Girl Guides and take up the challenge!”
