DEDICATED and passionate volunteers across the country will be recognised this week as part of National Volunteer Week.

In the lead up to National Volunteer Week, a number of members of Mandurah Southern Districts Bush Fire Brigade were recognised at the Brigade’s annual dinner.

They were Ann Graham, Dunk Graham, Paul Stokman (all 25 years), Kaye Toussaint and Brian Toussaint (both 30).

Ninety five-year-old Irene Demasson was recognised for 29 years service to the legal field and said it “kept her out of mischief”.

City of Mandurah Mayor Marina Vergone said volunteers played a vital role in the community.

“Many City-run activities would not run as effectively and efficiently as they do without our valued volunteers so a big thank you,’’ she said.”
