SES re­wards trio

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

STATE Emer­gency Ser­vice vol­un­teers from Gayn­dah and Biggen­den have been awarded for their out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions to the ser­vice.

Biggen­den vol­un­teers Kerry Ray and Jan­ice Rae and Gayn­dah vol­un­teer John Lamb re­ceived awards at the SES Awards Week cer­e­mony in Gympie last Satur­day.

Mr Lamb re­ceived an SES Awards Week cer­tifi­cate for in­valu­able ser­vice to the community and ex­cep­tional ded­i­ca­tion to his unit.

Gayn­dah SES cap­tain David Wil­son said Mr Lamb was “in­volved with ev­ery­thing we do” and the award was “re­ally de­served”.

Biggen­den SES lo­cal con­troller Kerry Rae and wife Jan­ice both re­ceived their 10 Year Merit Awards.

Mrs Rae said the SES was very re­ward­ing.

“It is worth­while, es­pe­cially with the knowl­edge and skills we have ob­tained,” she said.

“In my eyes, no mat­ter how old you are, no knowl­edge is wasted knowl­edge.”
