Community service honoured

By JOSEPH TERNOWETSKY joseph.ternowetsky@capnews.com.au

ERIC Anderson has been helping out the community for more than 30 years and today his tireless dedication to the city is recognised.

The 60-year-old owner of City Printing Works is one of the recipi- ents of the Order of Australia Medal in the Queen's Birthday Honours and he said it was a humbling experience.

"I am really overwhelmed by the medal,'' he said.

"But I don't think I did anything more than any other person has done in Rockhampton.''

Of course, this statement is abso- lutely untrue, and Mr Anderson's involvement in the community is simply astonishing.

He is a life member of the North Rockhampton Football Club, chair- person for the Rockhampton North Rotary Club, secretary for Rock- hampton Grammar School Parents and Friends Association, and the list goes on and on.

Through his work he has also pro- vided financial and material sup- port to the Rockhampton City Coun- cil Art Gallery, Rockhampton council libraries and a range of other community organisations.
