Joyce Knight has provided the community with 52 years of continuous community service to Mt Mee on the Hall Management committee in addition to being an active local. She was a member of the Mt Mee Hall Committee for more than fifty years and she held various Hall executive offices continuously for almost 35 years.

Joyce has moved into a retirement village in Caboolture. At a farewell morning tea on 25thOctober in Birches restaurant, more than fifty people came to celebrate her friendship and her enormous contribution to our community. Reference was made to her service as an office bearer in organisations such as the CWA and the Mt Mee Pony Club, the School Bus Committee, the Anglican Guild and the Mt Mee Church Improvement Fund. She was a member of the Mt Mee Hall Committee for more than fifty years and she held various Hall executive offices continuously for almost 35 years.

Joyce was presented with a painting that she had admired for some time. It is a rural scene depicting the very truck in which in her ‘salad days’ she travelled to dances from the family home in Old Cove Road with a group of local youngsters.

At a later event, the Moreton Bay Regional Council made a special presentation to Joyce commemorating her extended service to Mt Mee on the Hall Management committee and wishing her well.
