Thank you, SES
THE Victoria State Emergency Service is encouraging the community to paint the town orange today to celebrate the great work emergency volunteers do in their communities.
Today is Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW) Day, and falls in the middle of National Volunteer Week, an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution made by all of our nation’s volunteers.
Unit Controller Bernie Stiles said she is looking forward to seeing a sea of orange across Portland.
“It would be great to see as many people support this day by wearing orange and forwarding a photo to our Portland SES Facebook page,” Mrs Stiles said.
“We have 23 active members who give their day and night when in need.
“These members give up work and family time to assist the community.”
