- by Robert Dougherty More than $6500 has been raised for NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) volunteers during a New Year's Eve celebration in Laurieton.
Around six-hundred State Emergency Services (SES), RFS volunteers and their families were treated to dinner at Laurieton United Services Club (LUSC) instead of the annual fireworks display on Tuesday, December 31.
The event was featured three bands, childrens rides and was achieved with a community grant from the Rotary Club of Laurieton.
The Rotary Club of Laurieton director of community service Alan Anderson said the team had done their duty to support the community.
"Everyone coming through on the gate was very supportive of suspending the fireworks and diverting the money to the RFS," he said.
Laurieton United Services Club and Camden Haven Community at 3 are very proud to have been acknowledge for their work helping people in the local community.
At the 2019 Clubs NSW Award ceremony in Sydney on November 2, Laurieton United Services Club was the winner in the Disability, Welfare and Social Inclusion category for their involvement and support of Camden Haven Community at 3.
Laurieton United Services club manager Rob Dwyer said he was delighted to accept the award on behalf of Camden Haven Community at 3.
"We work with the Camden Haven Community at 3 because first and foremost, clubs are here to support their communities. Their whole communities," Mr Dwyer said.
Sisters Brooke, Sam and Mollie McClymont love what they do and they are definitely good at it.
Since the release of their debut self-titled EP in 2006, the country trio has racked up four No.1 albums on the ARIA Country Charts, a quarter of a million album sales, 22 chart-topping singles, 13 Golden Guitar Awards, including the 2018 Album of the Year for the best-selling album Endless.
The ladies have also become mothers, with Brooke expecting her second child with husband Adam Eckersley in January.
"I'm kind of book-ending the McClymont children journey," says Brooke. "I was the first to have one and this is probably the last one, although never say never with us girls."
