bushfire after party

Tonight saw the Belgrave South community come together for the Bushfire After Party. It was an opportunity to reflect on the tragic bushfires earlier this year, give thanks to all those who have extended a helping hand and get together as a community to celebrate all that is community.

Me pictured with Lyn Young, coordinator of the Belgrave South Community House and organiser of the after party.

The Southern Sherbrooke Historical Society put together a very interesting history of fires in the Dandenong Ranges spanning right back to early settlement. Entertainment included performances by The Quickfix, made up of members who have grown up in Belgrave South and Yohosie, also with a local flavour having band members from Menzies Creek and Ferntree Gully.

It was a great night to be amongst community and share our experiences.
