A good news story

Thanks to Lisa from Nourish Network for this:

I've just come from a marathon 5 hour session to assemble hampers and care packs for Nourish.

One of our members takes food each week to manchester Primary School who distribute it to several families who are unable to attend Nourish. They decided to support us this year with a food drive. As you can see, they did an amazing job, along with donations from Total Yoga for You and members of the community!

We assembled 27 amazing hampers full of staples and treats. Thankyou to all who helped!

Annual Town Forum

Hosted by the Mooroolbark Umbrella Group, this year's Forum featured Emergency Management Victoria Commissioner Andrew Crisp.

Andrew's address provided a helpful insight into his approach to coordinating the response to emergency in Victoria. Andrew acknowledged the work of his predecessor Craig Lapsley in working towards far greater cohesion and cooperation between emergency management agencies since the 2009 fires.

Centenary of Armistice

On a beautiful 11/11 a large crowd gathered at Hookey Park for the Remembrance Day service which coincided this year with the centenary celebrations of the armistice ending the carnage of World War I.

The guest speaker on the occasion was Major Kenneth Mackenzie pictured above with MC Randall Bourchier and local Councillors Terry Avery and Richard Higgins.

Towards the end of a moving service which included words from local students representing Yarra Hills, Mooroolbark, and Oxley Christian Colleges, many in the crowd came forward to place small crosses or red poppies into sand-boxes.

I spoke to many appreciative people following the service. One woman visiting from England was delighted to observe a Remembrance Day in the sunshine; another from Rowville came to Mooroolbark in search of a remembrance Day service.

Particular thanks goes to Lions President George Nantes, and Mooroolbark History Group President Marion Stott. Both organisations, along with the Moroolbark Umbrella Group worked hard to provide such a wonderful time of community!

 
10 Years On!

10 years on from the 2009 Victorian bushfires, what have we learned, how has our preparedness progressed, how have emergency response agencies improved their working together? And what does it all mean for you and me?
