An exhibition to help out our volunteer firefighters.LEE STEPHENSON April 2, 2014 4:48am
Have you ever wondered how a rural fire brigade operates?
Well here’s your big chance to see how it all works.
This Easter the Hilldene Rural Fire Brigade is holding an art exhibition in its station on Seymour-Tooborac Rd, just a couple of kilometres east of the Puckapunyal Army Base.
All works will be for sale and all sales will aid the Hilldene brigade, whose gruelling work on the fires which recently burned so perilously close to the Big Smoke was unflagging.
Day after day the members of Hilldene rostered themselves on and off the fire grounds while they fought to save houses, sheds, fences, paddocks, wildlife and stock in blistering temperatures and terrible conditions.
This art show is one way to show our appreciation for all the arduous work these volunteers put in.
Twelve well-known local artists, all with a connection to the CFA, will be showing some of their works in the fire station, with a grand opening at 7
The official opening will be conducted by CFA board chairwoman Claire Higgins.
An extraordinary range of works in oils, watercolour, pastels and mixed media will be on display and for sale.
There will be a raffle and catering for at least 200 guests will be provided by the brigade, with delicious cheeses from Yea Brand and local wine from Mitchelton Winery.
Commission from works sold will be donated to the CFA.
The show will remain open for the whole Easter break, from 10
