You may have noticed several Porsches cruising down the Warburton Highway on Sunday 5 May as members of The Porsche Club of Victoria visited Warburton CFA as part of their Autumn run to Cape Woolamai.
Over 40 club members each brought their Porsche along and travelled via Yarra Junction, Neerim South, Drouin, Poowong, Loch, San Remo and finished for lunch at Cape Woolamai at Phillip Island.
The Porsche Car Club of Victoria made a substantial donation to the fire brigade as part of their ongoing support of various CFA’s as a thank you for the service provided by fire-fighters across Victoria.
Members of the Porsche Club of Victoria spent the morning inspecting the fire tenders, chatting to brigade members and listening to a talk by Captain Hazel Clothier on the history of the Warburton Fire Brigade that spans over 100 years.
Warburton CFA has old equipment used throughout the brigade’s history on permanent display.
The Porsche Club of Victoria’s deputy director Geoffrey Mould said, “The Warburton Fire Brigade are great ambassadors for the Warburton Area and the Porsche Club of Victoria are keen to come back again to travel around the Warburton area on one of their regular runs around Victoria to sample more of the brigade’s hospitality.”
