Brigade transforms station for Christmas in July.LEE STEPHENSON July 25, 2014 3:43am
Trawool Fire Brigade social sub-committee held a dinner for members and friends on Saturday evening, turning the station into a winter wonderland for Christmas in July.
The normally sombre fire shed, tanker elsewhere, was transformed into a stunning venue for more than 100 dinner guests, with raffles and prizes, and a band.
President David Williams and treasurer Greg Smith represented the executive, with a supportive community group and their friends enjoying fun and a wonderful meal, prepared and presented beautifully by the sub-committee and their helpers.
It was a great night — the community spirit of Trawool Valley is alive and well indeed with good companions and friends, many from Seymour and from other brigades.
When they’ve had a breather, the sub-committee will start planning the next event to celebrate the Melbourne Cup in November.
