A lovely roast lunch was provided for this event by the fire brigade ladies, followed by the presentation of awards to approximately 35 members of the Loddon Vale brigade, ranging from five year certificates of appreciation to two 65 year clasps awarded to Cliff and Noel Harrison, with a 70 year clasp being awarded to John Harrison.

Robert Moon was also congratulated and acknowledged for his contribution to the brigade by being presented with a brigade life membership medal for his long commitment as president, but also as a long-serving volunteer who had experienced many highs and lows during his period of service. 

Robert responded by acknowledging the support of his brigade as a team, and also the tremendous back up given to him by his wife and family.

District 20 Operations Officer Matt Gardner and BASO Colleen Scriven were present to hand out the awards, and OO Matt commended and congratulated the Loddon Vale brigade members for their commitment and service to their brigade.
