Geoff Penna gives us an insight into his business journey.

How did your journey begin?
Geoff and Jean Penna commenced Penna Print, on 1st March, 1978. Just 10 years ago sold to Hansen Design & Print.

What’s the favourite part of your job?
Meeting with people – business leaders, business operators, local residents or tourists should always remain important. This in turn allows for courteous and satisfying service.

What’s your favourite part about the Ararat Region?
The geographic location, couple with the varying natural beauty is often taken for granted; but we are constantly reminded by travellers ‘what a beautiful part of the world you live in”.
This area provides all the services that we so heavily rely upon, and expect.

Why I/we joined ARBA?
Back in 1978, under the business of Penna Print, I joined the then “Ararat Chamber of Commerce”. It was imperative that a new business to town should become involved with the business community. This was seen as a direct way of having input. For about 25 years I was involved in all roles on the executive and committee; including trader promotions.

Meet Geoff White – JWard Volunteer

How did your journey begin?
I started volunteering at JWard about 11 years ago after I retired from teaching
What’s the favourite part of your job?
Taking tours for visitors to the region, seeing the improvement we as friends of JWard make to JWard with making it a better tourist destination and mixing with other volunteers who are involved with JWard.
What’s your favourite part about the Ararat Region?
The beautiful rural area such as Mt Langi Ghiran, Mt Cole, the rolling hills around Moyston and the scenic drive to Avoca.
Why we jointed ARBA?
One of our JWards aims is to promote businesses in the region by attracting 10-12,000 visitors. Also the more closely business can work together the more attractive we can make Ararat.

If you interested in becoming a volunteer contact JWard today for more information.
