Bestowed with the Rank of Knight of the Order of Wisdom and Learning

Ignazio was nominated with very high praise and recommendation from his peers for his dedication to his community and the environment and his sensibilities towards problems associated with crime, disabilities and various cultures which has produced in him an understanding that enables him to take on many of these problems, to help educate and therefore eradicate many of the difficulties. He has written many courageous reports, both of local and international interest and his willingness to provide support over a number of years has been outstanding.

Hon Julie Desmond
(Geraldton, W.A. AUSTRALIA)
Hon. Julie Desmond, Manager of "Getaway Outdoors Geraldton" is bestowed with the
Rank of
Commander in the Illustrious Order of Merit by HRH Prince Leonard for:
 Courteous, professional service she at all times provides to the public.
Julie is an exemplary person who takes great care and pride in ensuring that those she assists are both listened to and provided with what they need. Julie is also actively involved in fundraising events throughout every year, all held with the intent of improving the situation of people both in the local community and supporting various charities outside of the local area.
Julie's ready assistance to local non-profit clubs and organisations to ensure that their needs are met with the least expense possible in order that the limited funds available to such organisations are able to do the most good for the members, is often not as appreciated as it should be, which is little different to her many other positive achievements and actions; thus it is with pleasure, that here she may be recognised in a public way for her attitude and service to the public.

Congratulations!
