This group isn’t only for Casino, residents in surrounding areas can put in a request for assistance.

The army have been in Woodburn and Coraki and helped out at the Rappville Pub.

To thank them, publican Lisa Stewart is putting on a barbecue for the ADF on Friday, March 18.

“We received their help loading more flood damaged items after they helped other homes in the village. This would had been a massive task without the initial first help from the local community and few weeks later, the ADF who have shown much compassion, are so respectful and a true representation of Australian spirit,” Lisa said.
