Scotland Island Rural Fire Brigade Update
Kindy Visit
On Thursday, May 13, we are visiting the Scotland Island Pre School to talk to the kids and any parents that will be there. Graeme and myself are planning to do the visit and we would welcome any other members who are available that morning to come and assist.
Meet at the station at 10.30am for an 11am visit.

Pile burns on the Island
Just a reminder that we are planning to burn the piles at Pathilda Reserve on Sunday 16 May with the assistance of West Pittwater.

We will need as many members as possible to assist with this burn and get it completed in a good time. Lunch will be provided. It is a great opportunity to practice the basic skills we all need to maintain in a more realistic environment and dealing with fire.

For those members who have not been to a training session for a while, this is a great opportunity to reintroduce yourselves to training with the Brigade.

We also have piles on the Thompson Street walking track (western side of the Island) and the top of Elsie Street to burn in following weeks.

Mona Vale Library's - Biggest Morning Tea

Mona Vale Library will once again host the popular Biggest Morning Tea
to raise funds for cancer research from 10am to 12 noon on Thursday 27 May.

Event coordinator Heather Thomson said that Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea was an enjoyable social event and the Cancer Council’s premier fundraising event.

“Since the event began in 1994 it has raised over $70 million to fund cancer research, education and support services for patients and families” she said.
“Just the simple act of enjoying a morning tea can help Cancer Council support the 1 in 2 Australians who will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85,” said Ms Buddin.
The morning tea will see kettles switched on across Australian homes, schools and community centres throughout May to help the fight against cancer.

Entry to the Mona Vale Library morning tea which will include homemade cakes is a $5 donation and all proceeds will be donated to the Cancer Council.

Donations over $10 will be entered into a competition to win a European holiday valued at $12,800.
