Though most of the region is on fire the mighty Heyfield Chapter could not be stopped opening tonight. Seriously, there’s bush fires all over Gippsland and the town of Heyfield is real smoky today but with the experienced hand of Clean Pete at the wheel we know they’ll do just fine.
The town once know as Hayfield has a long and sometimes strange history that largely centers around timber and the land but as a a stopping point for diggers on their way to the Gippsland goldfields it really comes into it's own. We are honered to be a part of this towns future history.
So, welcome to all the new lads down their tonight at the Railway Hotel and big thanks to the mighty Briagolong Chapter goons for making the trip down for their opening night. Have a good night, see you next month.
