Vollie News Thursday 29th August 2013 Page 3 At the Rodeo with Benny Butler LRRD @ Berry Springs Frank Dunstan Litchfield Rural Response Division members Barb Klessa and yours truly attended the Berry Springs Community Markets last Sunday. It was a good morning with me there to sell books while Barb did four BPs and treated a young patient for an ankle hurt during vigorous play. Barb also answered enquiries about local First Aid courses, volunteering with St John and the Ambulance Subscription Scheme. One person who came to have their BP checked sought medical advice after our last visit and is now on medication for hypertension. It makes it all worthwhile, doesnt it? A copy of Awkward Hours, Awkward Jobs was sold for Kevin Kettle down south. You can read about Kevin in the book he was Superintendent of Darwin Corps before Cyclone Tracy and credited with being a very hard worker who made things happen and was the main driving force behind St John taking over the full Ambulance Service in Darwin. Attending the markets was an excellent PR exercise for St John and is now a regular outing for LRRD. Thanks to Benny Butler for these photos, taken at the rodeo at Robbie Robbins Reserve: Car 182, Benny Butler, Greg Payne, Wayne Bevan and Britney; members from three different divisions come together to cover a duty.
