The 80th anniversary celebration for the Towrang Bushfire Brigade will be held on Saturday, August 31, 6.30pm at the Chisholm Room, Goulburn Soldiers Club.
Dignitaries from council and NSW Rural Fire Service will be attending, as well as a number of our Life Members. If anyone has any memorabilia (eg photos, equipment, past uniforms) of the past 80 years of Towrang Brigade that they would be willing to loan for display, it would be very much appreciated.
The cost is $50 per person, please phone Annette on 0407 080 358 by Tuesday August 20 to make your booking.
Despite the strong winds of the past week, it is still a great time to do some hazard reduction burning and getting rid of those windrows or fallen branches and leaves. Remember, you need to have your name on the burns list at the Yass Fire Control Centre (contact 6226 3100 during business hours).
Before lighting up, notify your neighbours and send a text message to the duty phone (0438 298 271) with your name and address. Just remember to please check the weather conditions first - a good website for wind speed and time is www.wind.willyweather.com.au and then follow the links.
Training is still underway during the winter months and the station is open every Tuesday evening. If you would like any information about property protection, joining the brigade or training, come along from 7pm any Tuesday evening.
The Brigade has also paid tribute to the late John Divall, a long-serving volunteer and life member and a stalwart of the Towrang community. Your knowledge, expertise and smiling face will be sorely missed.
