Dulcie Artus joined the team of Te Puna Quarry Park volunteers in the very early years of its development, and some months later became the secretary. She was asked to be Treasurer soon after until 2011, and kept the secretary role for 20 years until she turned 80. She registered members, friends and volunteers, and was instrumental in maintaining contacts with local iwi, artists, funding agencies, suppliers, garden clubs, and the general public. Over the years, she coordinated behind the scenes a lot of the work that happened in the voluntary organisation, including promotion, fundraising, maps, photos, and festivals. Dulcie initiated and realised many projects, including creating the seating and lighting in the amphitheatre, building The Gallery, and working with the artists and craftsmen who created the sculptures and structures that make Te Puna Quarry Park so special today.
