Geoff Fry Awarded OAM
Recognition of Service
The above well-known Queensland banding identity was given the prestigious award for his outstanding service to banding at all levels over many years.
It’s not too often that members of the banding movement in Australia receive the public recognition which they deserve so it is very pleasing to see that Geoff Fry from Queensland was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in the 2010 Australia Day honours list.
Geoff has been a well-known drum major, drill adjudicator, member of the QBA Executive and the Queensland councillor on the NBCA for many years.
He was also one of the driving forces behind the two successful Nationals which Queensland has hosted in recent years and the brass band movement should be proud at this acknowledgement of Geoff’s contribution.
