In July 2020, the Rotary Club of Merimbula received an unexpectedly generous donation from the community of Lae, capital of Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea to put towards bushfire recovery efforts in the region.  Some of these funds were used to purchase 2 dual axle galvanised box trailers please see article:
“On 9 June 2021, members of the Merimbula RFS welcomed Members from the Merimbula Rotary Club to officially handover a new purpose-built Trailer Fire Fighting Unit for the Brigade.
Merimbula Rotary have been extremely generous to our Brigade over the years and have now delivered a Fire Fighting Unit for the benefit of our Community. This versatile Unit will be used for many important community-based activities, such as pile burns and asset protection.”  (Article & group photos courtesy of Merimbula RFS)
