May visitor wrap up

The month of May saw an influx of visitors to the Museum. Thanks to all who came for a look at the Museum collection. It means so much to us that the history of the CFS can be preserved and celebrated and it’s great to see visitors curious about the vehicles and how they were used to fight bushfires over the years.

Naracoorte men’s Probus Club

Tuesday 23 May saw a group of gentlemen from the Naracoorte Men’s Probus Club pay a visit to the Museum. We were very happy to welcome this group back.

Our archived photos tell us it was 2014 when the club last visited our collection. Since then there have been many changes including our now permanent home on Kingston Ave, Naracoorte. 

The gentlemen enjoyed a guided tour and history of the collection followed by a lovely morning tea. 

Latoya and David Crouch

Sunday 21 May we opened the museum for a surprise visit for a young couple travelling from Echunga CFS.

Latoya and David Crouch celebrated their first wedding anniversary today, and Latoya arranged the visit as a surprise for David.

David was suitably impressed with the museum collection, and they enjoyed a look at the memorial before continuing on their journey.

Diane and Paul Ashton

Diane and Paul Ashton from Launceston, Tasmania, dropped into the Museum while travelling in South Australia on Sunday 21 May. 

Following a square dancing convention in Adelaide, they toured both the Eyre and Fleurieu Peninsulas.

On their way home they stopped to catch up with fellow square dancers in Naracoorte and took the opportunity to visit the Museum whilst it was open. 

Michael, Danielle and Sam

On Sunday 21 May while the Museum was open for guests, visitors Michael Abeyratne, Danielle Azzolina and Sam Kolpondinos called in from across the way to see the collection. Having travelled from Springvale in Victoria, they were in Naracoorte celebrating Sam’s mum, Helen’s, 91st birthday. Happy birthday Helen!

Harry Potamitis

On Sunday 21 May, Harry popped in for a look at the Museum while we were open for visitors.
