Bowls salutes as Maisie hits the noble nineties
MAISIE Martin is a remarkable Lady.
After a lifetime full of admirable achievements, 90year-old Maisie reached another milestone recently when she was presented with her '90' year badge at the Twin Towns Bowls Club.
The award is an honour bestowed on club members, still involved in the sport in their 90s - She is Twin Towns only current member.
An institution at the club, Maisie still serves on the committee as the assistant treasurer, although she stopped playing a couple of years ago.
"It's the company I really enjoy," Maisie said.
"When I stopped playing I didn't want to give that up.
"I have been assistant treasurer for many years now."
And anyone who doubts Maisie is still up to the task had better think again, with club members describing her "sharp as a tack".
A talented sportswoman in her younger days, she represented New South Wales in basketball in 1938 and coached swimming in Sydney and Tasmania.
