National Volunteer Week: Shire of Waroona to thank emergency services volunteers with a dinner
Emergency services volunteers in the Waroona Shire are set to be thanked for their service in an event later this week.
The council will host an Emergency Services Recognition and Thank You Dinner on Thursday as part of its National Volunteer Week commemorations.
The dinner is an annual event to thank those who donate their time to save lives and protect the community, with Shire president Mike Walmsley describing it as a small way to show the community’s gratitude to those who serve it.
“We are incredibly grateful to our volunteer fire and emergency services brigade, our volunteer bush fire brigades and our volunteer ambulance officers who are supported tremendously by our local police force,” he said.
“These volunteers selflessly dedicate their time to keep our community safe.”
About 100 guests will enjoy the night at the Waroona Bowling Club, with Canning MHR Andrew Hastie and Murray-Wellington MLA Robyn Clarke set to attend.
The dinner has been made possible by Volunteering WA and is funded by Lotterywest.
