Julie Dawley might be a one of a kind volunteer in Lifesaving Society Ontario.
A volunteer in the Society since she was 16, Dawley was asked to be president-elect two years ago. In April she began her two-year term as president, introduced at the provincial meeting virtually from her Tillsonburg home. She will follow that term with two years as past-president, which includes representing Ontario on the Lifesaving Society’s national board, to conclude her six-year commitment.
“They call us the three P’s,” Dawley said. “They have a very good system. We all work together, and it works very well.”
It all started as ‘field rep’, and she later became co-chair of Area 5, which covers Oxford, Norfolk and Brant Counties. She served on committees, including first aid, and then became area services chair. She officially joined Lifesaving’s provincial board as vice-president of member services, and filled that role for about six years.
