Joanne Byron – Willaura’s quiet achiever

Written by Heather Fleming.
MANY people from the Willaura community and its wider district know how fortunate they are to have Jo Byron live and work amongst them.
In a small community where volunteers can be thin on the ground, Jo has done a power of work to ensure community life is strengthened. Her organisational skills and dedication seem boundless, and her unpaid efforts have encompassed a wide range of activities.
For many years the community has enjoyed the numerous events and fundraisers she has been actively involved in creating, and her volunteer efforts within various sporting and educational organisations have helped make them operate more smoothly.
Jo is extremely modest about her considerable achievements, and not one to seek the limelight or look for any recognition. Instead she works steadily to ensure that everyone is on board, and that whatever needs doing is done efficiently.
Jo’s attention to detail and capacity to sort tasks, roles, numbers and activities is remarkable. Her “job lists” are legendary and she has ensured that everything from publicity to co-ordinating the accommodation for visiting artists has been covered.
