The clean-up continues but our efforts have been greatly assisted by many community members who have assisted us in many ways. It has not been the easiest week but it has helped to show what a fantastic community we live in where so many are willing to help the shire out and each other. Your efforts are much appreciated by all of us. CEO Matt Gilfellon https://www.facebook.com/shireofdumbleyung/photos/a.354413364734542.1073741829.354363821406163/719699911539217/?type=3&theater
