Volunteers thanked for their help during fires
About 80 volunteers from Yarloop and Cookernup enjoyed a dinner at the Cookernup Hall on Thursday as a thank you for their compassion and help during the Waroona-Yarloop bushfire at the start of the year.
Yarloop Community Resource Centre manager Julie-Ann McMiles and helpers had organised a scrumptious roast dinner and special treats to acknowledge their contribution.
Murray-Wellington MLA Murray Cowper addressed the guests and said 2016 has been a trying year.
“I believe the Anzac spirit surfaced on this fateful night,” he said.
The night was also supported by Alcoa and not-for-profit organisation Givit whose state manager Anna Presser donated decorations and Margaret River chocolates as special treats.
