JULIENNE Feast has served the community as a nurse, counsellor and volunteer for five decades and was nationally honoured yesterday as a recipient of the prestigious Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM).

While her diverse nursing career afforded her many opportunities to connect with people, she was equally generous with her time and skills in her many volunteer roles.

Ms Feast volunteered as a regional nursing officer with the St John Ambulance service for 47 years – which included a stint as the divisional superintendent – and she is a current member of the Mount Gambier Road Safety Group, vice president of Friends of the Mount Gambier Library and a member of Anglican Community Care.
