Artist's Description


A Volunteers Award was presented to Jan Mees for his services to the Dutch Australian Cultural Centre, Smithfield and to the late Ankie Dupree and Jan Mees for their services to the Concordia Club in Newcastle by the NSW Heritage Office, on Thursday 20 November, in the AGL Theatre, Museum of Sydney and the following citation gave details of the award:

“*Our final Heritage Volunteer Award goes to JAN MEES and the late ANKIE DUPREE* who were nominated by the Dutch Australian Cultural Centre, Sydney and the Concordia Society, Newcastle

When Jan received news he was to receive this award he asked if he could share it in memory of a wonderful woman, his late partner of 30 years and an absolute rock of the Dutch-Australian community, Ankie Dupree. Ankie, also known to her friends as Ann, lost a brave battle against cancer in July this year.

Ankie would have celebrated 25 years as President of Concordia in 2008 and her leadership throughout this time was without parallel. With Jan, Ankie was also a member of the Dutch Australian Cultural Centre in Sydney and she was a dedicated volunteer serving her local community and a great promoter of our nation’s multicultural heritage.

Jan is one of earliest members of the Centre, and is a popular hard working volunteer serving the Dutch community in both Sydney and Newcastle. He is the one you rely upon to get a job done quickly and efficiently. He staffs the Centre, sits on its board, organises film, radio, and DVD afternoons at the Abel Tasman retirement Village, collects books and materials for the Centre’s library and archive, sets up exhibitions and is bus conductor and driver for the community’s day excursions. Jan even takes on the role of the Dutch Santa Claus (Sinterklaas) which is always a highlight of the community’s Christmas festivities.

Would you please join the Minister in congratulating JAN MEES and in saluting the memory of ANKIE DUPREE"
