Paula Leech of Station 3 and Alison Smith of NSRI Head Office joined the volunteers from VWS at the first Tuesday night of Volunteer Month at the Little Creek Spur in Tokai.
“Every single employee of the restaurant dressed up as a hero, some fictional such as Batman and others real such as a Fireman. This really set the tone for what was a truly wonderful evening for both adults and kids (and the adults who acted like kids too!). The volunteer firefighters shadowed the waitering staff chatting to diners and even joined them on their dancing train around the restaurant.”
“The cutest sight was the little chap holding hands with one of the tallest firefighters while staring up at him in absolute awe.”
“The SEA RESCUE video was played on loop the entire evening so the diners learnt about What We Do our WaterWise Academy and were able to see the clip on Volunteers.”
“It was wonderful to interact with the diners and we fielded a few questions from people interested in joining Sea Rescue as volunteers,” said Alison.
“It was great to meet such nice people from another volunteer organisation. I think volunteer organisations seem to attract like-minded, kind-hearted and generous types. It does take an unselfish person to give up their time so willingly,” added Paula.
We can recommend to all our supporters and volunteers, who are in the area, that they bring the family down for some flame grilled burgers in support of NSRI and VWS between 6 – 8 PM any Tuesday evening in October. The staff created a fantastic atmosphere and it really was a lot of fun.
