Christmas cheer was flowing when Ninderry MP Dan Purdie teamed with the Imperial Hotel to distribute cartons of Eumundi Beer to local emergency service personnel this week.
In a gesture of thanks and gratitude for their efforts, Dan and the team from the Imperial delivered cartons of the craft beer to local rural fire brigades, police and fire officers and SES volunteers across the electorate, following a hectic year protecting the local community.
“What better way to say thanks and spread some Christmas cheer than a carton of our very own locally brewed Eumundi beer,” Mr Purdie said.
“It’s fair to say our emergency service personnel have had a particularly busy year, and I don’t think there would be anyone who would deny it’s a fitting token of the community’s appreciation.
“Our firies and emergency service personnel have only just this week been back out on the front line, once again doing our community proud, so in typical Aussie fashion, we’re returning the favour, and delivering some festive cheer.”
Paul Thomas from the Imperial Hotel said he was pleased to be able to give something back to the emergency services in recognition of what they do for the community.
“While we may sometimes take them for granted, it’s really important to be able to give something back, and let them know just how much we value and appreciate them,” Paul said.
Eumundi Rural Fire Brigade’s First Officer Scott Brooks said the volunteers were grateful for the gesture.
“We’re not in it for the recognition, but we certainly appreciate the community’s support,” Scott said.
“It makes it all worthwhile, knowing we’re making a difference.”
