- 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.
