                          Geelong Kokoda Youth Program  There is a video clip  for each year 2013 to 2018. 

                                                                          Guest speaker Andy Brittain showed the 2018 clip.

                                                                          The 2013 clip is well worth watching as it sets the scene.

                          Black Saturday There was only time to show the very beginning of this short

                                                 reflection of the Black Saturday fires which ravaged Victoria

                                                  on 7/2/2009 - 10 years ago.

                                                 As well as the devastation it shows how the Strathewen

                                                 community responded with two Art Projects to help their

                                                  community members in their recovery.

                                                  It also shows the Blacksmiths Tree which stands 10 metres

                                                   high in Strathewen.  It has more than 3000 forged leaves

                                                   made by blacksmiths around the world.  It is dedicated to

                                                   those who were lost in the Black Saturday fires,

                                                   the brave CFA men and women who fought the fires

                                                    and the Strathewen community.

                                                   The inscription reads: 

                                                    I have risen from the flames

                                                    I have stetched across the earth

                                                    I am shining with your name.
