THE Rosa Brook Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade has inducted its first life member, Jill Hind.
Jill was a dedicated secretary to the brigade for 16 years and her efforts have helped the Rosa Brook, Rosa Glen and Osmington communities.
She was the primary co-ordinator for building a fire shed, doing research, quoting and building liaison.
While the shed was under way, she strove to obtain a new dual cab 3.4 appliance for the brigade, the first in the Augusta-Margaret River Shire.
Her catering skills were legendary, especially at the Greg Davey Memorial Days at Rosa Brook.
She was also instrumental in helping to organise fellowship nights and recruiting new members.
As Jill was not an active firefighter, she was ineligible to receive a service medal, so the brigade felt the most fitting tribute was to bestow her Life Membership.
Jill said she was grateful for the recognition and humbled by the honour.
She has since left the district for the greener pastures of Tasmania, and the brigade wishes her the best in her new adventures.
