Just over 15 months ago the Flowerdale Community House wasapproached by Regional Arts Victoria (RAV) to see whether any localartists were interested in trying for selection for a project calledIlluminated by Fire.Not long after this, local artist, Sharon Collins had an idea to cast thehand of every Flowerdale resident in clear glass resin. Onesuggestion plus one idea equals one fantastic project
andEnlightened Spirits was born.Because the Flowerdale Tree logo had become a symbol of everything wonderful aboutour community, and had been immortalized on the skin of more than 80 people, the Treebecame an integral part of the Enlightened Spirits project.
 After submitting a proposal, along with 35 other applicants Sharon Collins’ proposal was accepted as one of the elevenprojects to be included in the Illuminated by Fire display. Apart from the criteria of ―astonishing art‖, the project was
also enhanced by the amount of community involvement in it. More than 280 Flowerdale residents, their families andtheir friends have had their hands cast for this Artistic Installation.Last Saturday, at the Flowerdale Recreation Reserve, Enlightened Spirits was launched with around 200 peopleattending. After a delicious dinner, fantastic performances from Rita and her friends innot have been completed to such a brilliant standard without the tireless efforts of TonyTurner and Vicky Miller and Dave Thompson.It was wonderful to be able to welcome visitors from RAV who have been such
enthusiastic supporters of Sharon’s project, including Artistic Driector Donna Jackson,
RAV Director Lindy Allen, Illuminated by Fire project Cordinator Joseph Toohey and hispartner, Tahlia, Documentary Film Maker Malcom, and RADO Marilyn Gourley.Equally privileged were we to have Olivia Brumen from Vic Market Tattoos and her lovelymum, Jill visit for the evening. Olivia is much loved by the 80+ Flowerdalians who havehad our Tree Logo inscribed on to their bodies, because for these past 18 months, Oliviahas given up her only day off each week to tattoo people of Flowerdale free of charge.
Sharon’s Enlightened Spirits Art Installation is due to be moved to Federation Square next
June to be displayed with the other 10 Illuminated By Fire projects. If funding can besourced, it may not be too late for Flowerdalians who have not done so, to have theirhands cast and added to the Federation Square Display. As always an amazing team put this daytogether
there are too many people toname
but it was the FlowerdaleCommunity coming together with suchspirit that made the evening one toremember. Congratulations Sharon
abrilliant launch.

Friday Riders Night waslots of fun, showcasinggreat local music and giv-ing our visitors and volun-teers time to catch up witheach other and relax intothe weekend.Saturday CommunityNight featured a gorgeousroast beef meal in our large marquee, fire drums,raffle, auction and mud
lots of mud. Excellententertainment by theFlowerdale PrimarySchool Singing Group, our local poets Jordan andDylan Mason and PeteAuty, later followed byRuckus, ensured a greatnight for everyone.After two weeks of rela-tively dry weather andsunshine, the rain cameand winter returned
justin time to offer the Hoof Over Hills Organizers andVolunteers their greatestever challenge.Yet the endless rain, thesleet, the snow, the thickmud, the paddocks whichhad turned into lakes andrivers, did little to quell theexcitement of Hoof Over Hills. The only mention of the weather was the aweexpressed when our guests woke, on Saturdaymorning, to snow cappedhills and trees.And later, one thin ray of sunlight dared to defy thedark clouds, and thebreathtaking miracle of asingle rainbow spannedthe Hoof Over Hills prop-erty. Even when the chal-lenges seem impossible,the rewards are rich.While numbers were downon previous years, 220registered horse ridersand almost 100 campersembraced the sense of adventure and welcominghospitality of Hoof Over Hills. Treated to spec-tacular views from horseback through bushlandand hilltops overlookingthe Valley Of A ThousandHills, riders were sup-ported by Trail Boss AlanSchulz and his Crew of fully qualified Ride Lead-ers, Stewards, Paramed-ics and Drag Riders. Thelarge friendly 4WD BackUp Crew provided hot teaand coffee, cool drinks,freshly made sandwiches,fruit and home madecakes, slices and quichesand a BBQ lunch for morethan 250 people on thetrail.For campers there werewarming fire drums, localsights and places to ex-plore, on site BBQ andhorse and cart rides. TheShed wall was turned intoa beautiful mosaic of 
―Thank You Signs‖ and
photos from previousyears, with visitors able totake any pictures theywanted at the end of theweekend.Cooked bacon and eggbreakfasts with warmbread rolls, cereal, freshfruit salad, organic orange juice and tea and coffeeensured everyone wasfuelled for the excitingdays of Hoof Over Hills.
