It's all quiet on the eastern front!
 
 A HUGE thank you to all those club members who have been volunteering with the TLCCV and Blaze aid fire relief. 
 
Things have quietened down in Gippslands Fire Relief areas but there is still plenty of work to do to assist farmers in cleaning up fire damaged properties.
