Its not every day a brigade can attest to awarding 12 members with service awards for their 320 years of valuable contribution to CFA and their community. 

CFA District 2 Commander Darren Eenjes and Lancefield Fire Brigade Captain Gary Rogan presented service awards ranging from five years to an exceptional 60 years for volunteer Barry Hunt.

Commander Eenjes thanked the brigade members and made a special mention of the great work being done by the brigade management team.

Captain Gary Rogan beamed with pride at being able to bring the members together for an informal lunch and afternoon tea to pay respects for their service. He commented on the exciting future for the brigade with nine new recruits and the experienced members adding postive leadership and values. 

"We are on the cusp of a positive change within the brigade and the recognition of members here today is one way to ensure everyone is valued," Gary said.
