THE Wonthaggi Fire Brigade held its annual presentation dinner recently when ex-brigade captain Jamie Moresco was honoured with life membership.
A key member of the brigade for 25 years, the award was very well deserved.
“I’m truly honoured to receive this. It’s all a bit of a shock actually but I’d like to thank everyone involved in the brigade,” Moresco said in his speech.
Also on the night CFA long service awards were presented to Theresa O’Dea, Jason Mathieson, Rhiannon Cazaly for five years of service; secretary Wendy Donohue and Scott Edwards received 10-year medals; Ross Brooks and Nathan Stebbing 15-year medals; Geoff Oakley and Pete Walters 20-year medals; Jamie Moresco 25 years and Bill Barbour and Paul Kennedy 30 years.
“As a brigade we are lucky to have these dedicated members as part of our team,” brigade captain Peter Dell said.
To conclude the night the brigade awards were presented to Arnaud Marion (Firefighter of the Year), Bryan Senior (Bill Colbert Encouragement Award), Andrew McCormick (Training Award) and Bill Barbour and the C2A crew (Captain’s Award).
Congratulations to all who received awards.
