Ann was one of the very few volunteers honoured for 10 years of dedicated service.
The booklet "With My Heart in My Palm" launched at the function describes the work of the
Central Sydney Area Health Service and features Ann Kapočius on the front cover. Ann has
been a very active member of the Sydney Lithuanian Women’s Social Services Association and
has been devoted to the care of elderly Lithuanians for many years. The leading article in
the booklet is also about Ann's life and work.
