Next year, to mark the anniversary of the Black Saturday fires, the format will be a little different. It will beheld at the Flowerdale Hall on the 6
of February and hopefully will be a wonderful occasion that everyonecan walk away from feeling proud.The launch of the USB project by Samm Hall (sponsored by Arts Victoria & Salvation Army) will be one of theevents. This USB project, for those who are not aware, is a collection of photos taken from Black Saturday (noupsetting images) and the following year, events , gatherings and general progress in Flowerdale.
s are for everyone in Flowerdale (one per family, whether you lost your house or not), the mainreason for the idea was that people who lost everything in the Black Saturday fire, including photos, wouldhave a little piece of Flowerdale always especially, the residents who have had to move away and may notreturn. The USB will contain approx. 600 photos, candid people shots, scenery images and portraits that willalways remind the viewer of Flowerdale.Other attractions on the day will include:

There will also be a huge display of artwork from ANYONE who lives (or lived) in Flowerdale. This can beanything whatsoever, the more people involved, the better the display will be. Flowerdale has so manytalented people, professional & amateur; it will be quite an impressive display. This artwork does NOT have tobe bushfire related.
We will also be having food stalls of delicious tucker, with the proceeds going to the various communitygroups running the stall.
