The Berrigan Red Cross centenary celebrations kicked off with the unveiling of a commemorative plaque outside the Berrigan RSL Club on Thursday.

Berrigan Shire Mayor Bernard Curtin spoke of the terrific work of the Red Cross members, which was followed by a detailed history of the local Red Cross from Father Michael Moulder, who had the honour of unveiling the plaque.

Afterwards at a morning tea inside the RSL, fond memories of past and present Berrigan Red Cross members and their service were shared among the sizeable crowd.

Members expressed how proud and happy they were to be involved in lending a hand to local, national and international crises, sharing stories of their most rewarding experiences and mentioning the strong comradeship of their branch.
