ALB Adelaide Committee vice-president, Lithuanian Caritas vice president, Lituania choir patron and an active member of almost every other Lithuanian group in Adelaide.
He was one for the first to organise the Young Christian group and assisted in their summer camps.
His truck was a real asset to the community, one which Balys was extremely generous in using it for the community’s needs. Travels to and from scout camps, when the school needed a Christmas tree, Balys found one, cut it down and transported it to the school. His time and truck were donated for free.
He was well known for his putting his head down and working hard. He worked tirelessly on the Adelaide Lithuanian Church’s Christies beach property, building fences, sports area, levelling the site, creating a garden and path and planting the lawn.
