Thanks to everyone who attended the Lake Clifton-Herron Australia Day
celebration. It was a great morning with about 65 attendees. It was
lovely seeing families coming to celebrate Australia’s Special Day.
Thanks for the great help from all the ladies in the kitchen , the
“boys” on the BBQ and every one who helped set up the tables, clean up,
etc. Congratulations and thanks to our flag raisers Susan Morris and
Karena Silbereisen for their dedicated Wildlife Carer activities in
raising possums and kangaroos.  A heartfelt thank you to our fire service
attendees and to all who donated to the Fire Appeal Fund with $320
raised.  The major charities were considered for your donations but we
believe that the Saint Vincent de Paul Society will achieve the best
use of your generous donations.

Thanks  to everyone who attended and made this a great occasion.

Fire – A reality check

These two article from the Financial Review are the best I have seen on the current problems. They cut through the political garbage and the misinformation put about by people with no knowledge. As we all live in a fire prone area we need to know what really drives the problems and what can, can’t and should be done to minimise them. I hope these help to quiet some of the alarmist discussions and keep us all a bit more balanced.

I am still a big believer in fuel reduction but please don’t just burn you property without getting advice and have plenty of help on hand. Even in winter things can get out of control.
