Who would ever have imagined that during the Christmas and New Year break from our normal bowls activities, our country would experience such devastating times. Everyone seems to have family or friends threatened in some way by the unpredictable might of the bushfires. We, at YMGCR, extend our best wishes to everyone in those areas, and join with the rest of the community to thank the Fire Brigades and support workers who are helping bring the situation under control.
