Mayor Bill West alongside Shane Dillon, coordinator of Cowra Driver Reviver opened the new building and awarded certificates of appreciation to those who helped complete the building.
“I think the handing out of those certificates really highlights what a wonderful community contribution this has been,” Mayor West said.
“The council has had an involvement and have been pleased to do so, but the support from our community that Shane acknowledged is appreciated.
“The community who have provided funds, provided labour and man power to make this happen, you have provided a great resource to our community,” he said.
Mayor West also congratulated the volunteers who will operate the Driver Reviver building saying they were great ambassadors for the community.
“I congratulate you Shane, all your volunteers and all the people who work with you, on your perseverance,” he said.
“It hasn’t been easy, I acknowledge that, there has been a few issues we’ve had to overcome, but whether you’re a Lions club member, a member of the Antique Vehicle Club, Masons, Salvation Army or Fire and Rescue, we are all appreciative that you come together and do this for our community.
“A lot of people have benifited from Driver Reviver nationwide and it helps to reduce road toll.
“You are also ambassadors for the community people come in here and you talk to them about Cowra and what a great place it is, they see this beautiful facility in one of the beautiful parks and they see its a great place to come back and visit.
