Despite what her husband
would tell you, Dianne
Jacobson does a lot
more with her time than attend
afternoon teas with friends. As
the convener and treasurer of
the City of Wagga Eisteddfod,
she spends most of her days
ensuring the smooth running of
Wagga’s biannual performance
competitions. “I’ve been with the
Eisteddfod nearly 40 years, and
dance convener most of that time,”
Dianne says. On Australia Day this
year, Dianne’s years of service were
recognised with the Wagga Wagga
Citizen of the Year Award.
Giving a hand
Dianne first got involved in the
Wagga Wagga Eisteddfod through
her daughters, who were competing
at the time. “ They asked me to help
with the afternoon tea. The rest is
history,” Dianne says. “I just love it.
It’s the friendships, the people you
meet along the way. We don’t get
paid, we’re all volunteers. You just
get so much out of the friendships
that you make with people over
the years.” Dianne’s proud of the
connections she’s been able to
nurture through the Eisteddfod.
“I’ve got generations coming. I
know the mum, the grandmum,
and now I’ve got the granddaughter.
It’s just amazing,” she says. But
none of it would be possible without
other volunteers. “I’ve got some very
good helpers, and my right-hand-
lady, Mandy, she’s just excellent.
We get on so well, we go on holidays
together, we’re like family. You need
someone like that.”
The show must go on
Dianne had planned to move on
from the Eisteddfod at the turn of
the millennium, but decided
to stick around. “ I’m hoping to
get to the 100th eisteddfod, and
then I’m hoping to retire after
that,” she says. “Given good
health and ever ything; we’ ll have
to see what happens.”
Until then, Dianne says the
Wagga Wagga Garden City Probus
Club is the perfect way to relax
with friends. “ It’s just lovely to go
to something and just walk in and
walk out and not have any worries,”
she says. “ I’m just so glad I joined.
There’s a lot of couples. In fact I’ve
got six of them coming tomorrow
for afternoon tea.”
Her husband might not be too far
from the truth after all. ••
After watching her daughters
dance in the Wagga Wagga
Eisteddfod, Dianne Jacobson
volunteered to help out. That
was 40 years ago. Since
then, she hasn’t stopped.
