Our Chairman Craig Humphrey made the front page of the local Warrnambool Standard today, great story inside, a reminder of how much caravanners contribute to the town’s economy.
Following a meeting with ACC Branch representatives yesterday the Clubs support for the Truck Friendly program was launched.
Members are encouraged through the program to work with Trucks on the road and display on the rear of their van their commitment to the program.

The morning started with the opening ceremony at the Lighthouse Theatre in town with most members opting to catch the buses provided by the Warrnambool City Council.
Our muster coordinators Terry and Pam Hawkins started us off before we heard from our Chairman Craig Humphrey and then the event was officially opened by Mayor Tony Herbert. This was followed by a lovely morning tea at the venue.
A short break for lunch and then Branch representatives met with the Board members to discuss future direction for the club. After that the Charity afternoon tea for the local Food Share was attended by a good sized crowd who heard some interesting statistics on how many families in the area have been assisted by this wonderful organisation.
The first timers attended a welcome Happy Hour with the Board while the repeat attendees held their own gathering. The night is to finish with a pizza dinner followed by a Bush Dance, a very full first day.

It is Road Safety Week in Queensland and the Department of Transport and Main Roads organised various workshops across the state. Special attendees at the Bundaberg workshop were Ken Wilson (the man behind the development of the Truck Friendly road safety program) and our own Tom Smith.
The ACC has partnered with Ken to enhance and promote Truck Friendly within our Club. Ken took the opportunity to hand over to Tom our allocation of his Truck Friendly stickers which have been imprinted with the ACC logo.
The Club is planning to launch the program during the Branch Representatives Briefing on day 1 of the National Muster. For further information go to www.truckfriendly.com.au and details of the launch are here.
