Colin Coyle was recently re-elected Wodonga group officer for the tenth year. He’s been in the brigade for 39 years while his father George, 98 years, has been a member for more than 70 years. Their knowledge has been passed on to Colin’s son Ross.
Bruce Vine’s local knowledge used to extend to knowing the name of every single one of his chooks and sheep. Alas, the foxes got them and now his and wife Lorice’s five acres in Tawonga at the foot of Mt Bogong are used for agisting horses.
