Raising The Roof

The Rotary Club of Mundaring recently demonstrated the literal meaning of the expression ‘Raising The Roof’. The photo depicts members of the club in the process of erecting one of two gazebos built to commemorate the efforts of local and more distant fire brigades that fought the disastrous bushfires in Parkerville, Stoneville and Mt Helena on 12 January 2014, which destroyed 57 homes and damaged many more.

The magnificent efforts of the brigades involved, over three hot and windy days, prevented even more devastation.

The shelters were erected using funds from the Rotary Club of Mundaring, the Rotary Club of Swan Districts along with a District Grant from Rotary District 9455, a Natural Disaster Recovery Fund Grant from the Westpac Bank and with invaluable support from the Shire of Mundaring.

The shelters are positioned on the path that the fire took on that awful day and will stand as a reminder that we should be ever vigilant, as it could all too easily happen again if we become complacent.

Note: The Kelpie is there to nip the heels of anyone slacking off!
