Do­na­tions still flow­ing for fire-hit school

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

AL­THOUGH five months have passed since the tragedy of the An­zac Day fire that tore through Dalby State School, sup­port con­tin­ues to roll in.

The Dalby Ro­tary Club has made a new do­na­tion to the school, fol­low­ing its $2500 do­na­tion ear­lier in the year.

Ro­tary District Gov­er­nor El­wyn Hodges, who is based in Bris­bane, trav­elled out to Dalby ear­lier this week to make the sec­ond do­na­tion of $5000.

He was joined by the Dalby Ro­tary pres­i­dent Shirley Mel­lor to hand over the cheque.

Dalby State School rep­re­sen­ta­tives Ben Ed­munds and Penny De Waele were on hand to grate­fully ac­cept the do­na­tion, com­ing into the school dur­ing their hol­i­days to re­ceive the money.

The $7500 from the Ro­tary Club will be used to re­fur­bish the new mu­sic room once it has been re­built.

The school lost both its mu­sic room and ad­min­is­tra­tion block dur­ing the fire. This ges­ture is the lat­est do­na­tion to the school after months of un­be­liev­able com­mu­nity sup­port.
