BRA DISPLAY... With far too many friends and rela-
tives having been affected by breast cancer, Port
Vincent women Sue Trembath, Theresa Germaine and
Helen Hall decided to support Bras Off for Breast
Cancer by staging a very public display. After collecting
bras from op shops and the like for the past 12 months,
they have tied them to a fence on the edge of the town.
The unusual display has caused a number of motorists
to do a double take and stop to take photos. The
women said breast cancer doesn't discriminate, with
age or size not part of the equation, and people need to
be reminded of that fact. Sue, Theresa and Helen were
back at work on Saturday adding more bras to the col-
lection, and spray painting them pink, when local Chris
Keys stopped by to support the cause.

prepare for a bushfire event,
it's also given us more confi-
dence to make the right deci-
sions should we have to face
the prospect of a fire on our
"On a practical note, we all
had a go at using a farm fire-
fighting unit, and did a build-
ing inspection around the
school looking for potential
hazards so we know what to
look for at home."
For local CFS volunteers
Elizabeth Hutchinson and

the subject from the point of
view of people faced with a
