The St John’s Ambulance team held their annual church parade on Sunday.
The parade is always held on the closest Sunday to the 24th of June, which is St John the Baptist Day.
“It is for all St John
members and goes right
through from cadets to first
aid services and the training
branch,” said secretary and
training member Merrilyn
Pedergnana.
Each year they choose a
church and are included in
the church’s service. This
year they picked St James’
Church on Wilson Street.
“The reason we chose
that church was because
one of our cadets Jusara
Capel was the Cadet of the
Year, and it is her church.”
Jusara also did a reading
at the service, along with
chairman Jim Daly who
gave a short talk on the
history of St John’s which
goes right back to the
Crusade.
Anyone wishing to
volunteer or undergo
one of St John’s first aid
courses may contact Ms
Pedergnana on 0435 104
575.
