Girls raise $200 for help­ful SES

Mem­bers there for town in times of strife

Central and North Burnett Times - - SES WEEK 2012 -

SE­RI­OUSLY Ed­i­ble Sweet­cakes, sold by Gayn­dah’s Ju­nior Girl Guides, have raised money for the lo­cal State Emer­gency Ser­vice (SES) team.

The girls sold cakes down­town to show their ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the ded­i­ca­tion and hard work of the Gayn­dah SES, rais­ing more than $200.

The SES has been in­valu­able to the town, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing the re­cent storm that de­stroyed rooftops and brought down trees in the area.

Lo­cal SES Cap­tain David Wil­son ac­cepted the money at last Thurs­day’s guide meet­ing, along with a mes­sage of thanks to send on to his fel­low SES mem­bers.

Mackin­ley Poin­ton pre­sented the money on be­half of the Ju­nior Girl Guides and made spe­cial thanks to the SES team for help­ing her fam­ily af­ter they lost their house roof in the re­cent storm.
