Volunteers and the Braidwood community took a break and were treated to a concert put on by the community.
The concert, featuring country music singer/songwriter Tom Curtain and local resident Keith Potger from The Seekers, was a welcome distraction for the 350-plus residents and volunteers from what has been a long 10 weeks.
Thank you BlazeAid!
