Light tower progress


Light tower progress

The Leongatha SES Unit embarked on an appeal to collect money for a light tower in the middle of last year, and so far have reached nearly $16.000.- of the 40.000 target.
At the time it was hoped that a grant would supply the last of the money, but unfortunately the unit’s grant application was unsussessfull at that time. As the $16.000 was given by the community for this purpose, it is only right that a progress rapport is issued. The Leongatha SES unit hope that after a few more month with collecting more money, the purchase can be done.
This particular year is very demanding on the unit’s finances as some major equipment have to be replaced, and therefore the avalability of the unit itself to add substancially to the $ 16.000 is a little streched. All money collected for the light tower is in the bank specifically earmarked for excately this purpose.
It is realised some members of the local community may be wondering what is happening, so the unit management is pleased to clarify progress.
The decision to purchase the light tower stands as originally decided, but it have to take a little more time untill enough finances are obtained.
Again this year 2010, the members are doing several fund raising efforts towards this. Things as the monthly IGA sausage sizzles at the Leongatha and Korumburra IGA stores do give nice donations and also the contract with the South Gippsland Road Safe Committee changing and maintaining the road safe banners and bill boards is a good way to add substancially to the Light tower appeal total.
This does lead the unit to again appeal to the community to assist with this project. If anyone can assist financially, please do!
It is a priority to purchase this light tower, but of cause the money must be in the bank before the light tower can be ordered .
If there are any questions regarding this, please call Controller Tony Lindhard on 0429 343 199.
It is hoped that the community again can step up and assist as it so often have to support important causes.
