WA Local Hero 2010
Rhonda Parker has worked passionately to better her community for the past 30 years and is part of the glue that holds the community together. She is the driving force behind many local organisations. Rhonda is the longstanding Music Director for the Boyup Brook Country Music Club, which organises Western Australia’s largest country music festival. The festival runs for five days with over 100 performers and Rhonda has been integral to its success.
A dynamic volunteer, she has held numerous positions within the golf club and is currently Handicap Manager. She was also a keen participant of the Country Women’s Association, and a St John’s Ambulance volunteer, a role that is of particular importance in a rural and remote town like Boyup Brook. Rhonda is always willing to put her hand up to help but her motto is ‘I am only one link in the chain’. Rhonda’s enthusiasm and lack of hubris make her a much-loved figure in this small town.
