fire and rain

It was a little ironic that the day of the Selby CFA Fireman’s Fair was on one of the coldest, wettest November days, but that didn’t stop the community coming out in force to support the local brigade.

There were all manner of treasures for sale and bargain of the day had to be the fully working television going for $1. Like the Menzies Creek Primary School Fete the week before, these local events bond our community and give us a sense of place and belonging.

Although a fundraiser, there are great social benefits too.

It also reinforces the important role the CFA plays in our community, they give of their time freely and the community is truly thankful for their contribution.
