Great Guiding Life
Robinette Emonson moved into the Village with her husband some years ago and during her time here has served as both State Commissioner and then National Chief Commissioner for Girl Guides Australia.
After a great Guiding life as a child in Melbourne, Robinette has served in a volunteer capacity in Guiding for over thirty-five years.
She has served in many leadership roles, as a Trainer and member of the State Training Team, as well as serving on the State Board for many years. Robinette was the first Australian recipient of the Gregory Fellowship and represented Australia at an international conference in India.
She was pleased to have the opportunity to travel to far flung reaches of India, Nepal, Japan and the UK to name a few, that her Chief Commissioner role required.
Outside Guiding, Robinette has served as National Vice President of UNIFEM (now UN Women), co-ordinating the International Women's Day Breakfast program across Australia.
Now retired from this very demanding role, Robinette still keeps busy spending more time enjoying quilting and knitting. She is an avid walker and bike rider and can often be found at the village gym.
