Report on the SA VFFM AGM

Report on the SA VFFM AGM held at Naracoorte on Sat 13th Sept 2014

Volunteer representatives from across the State travelled to Naracoorte and joined with local Museum working party members to conduct their Annual Meeting at the weekend. Following the Meeting held on Saturday afternoon State delegates, working party members, Museum supporters and their families joined in a family BBQ.

Mr Rex Hall Chairman of the SA VFFM reported that there were few changes to the overall structure of the Museum. The Annual Meeting however had appointed 5 people from across the State as a board of governance. The board would oversee and advise on legal matters and the increasing financial position of the Museum.

The meeting had resolved to maintain the membership of the Museum at $10 a person per year. Anyone interested in becoming a member was invited to contact Rex on 0417 081 560 or the Volunteer Fire Fighters Museum at Box 1222 Naracoorte 5271.

During the afternoon a certificate of appreciate was presented to Mr George Cornwell from Bridgestone Tyre Centre Naracoorte for his Company’s donation of tubes and tyres which is (stage one) in the restoration of the recently donated 1940 Beresford trailer and pump.

The Museum Committee invite all members of the community to contact them if they have any photos or other early volunteer Fire Service memorabilia.
