    <p>During the February Get-Together, a conversation around disaster commemorations and memorial emerged. It would be helpful if we could continue a dialogue here around what some communities have experienced from lived expeirence, along with local council and emergency services contributions.</p>

    Thanks Kate!
    In light of the 15th anniversary of the Black Saturday fires in Victoria, I wanted to share what Nillumbik Shire Council does in terms of commemoration.

    First and foremost, we are led by the affected communities. There is a memorial site in Strathewen, and the local community has a gathering on every anniversary. The Council doesn’t attend, but it does acknowledge significant anniversaries on our website, newsletter and socials.

    The post Council made yesterday acknowledging the fires is here: https://www.nillumbik.vic.gov.au/Council/News-and-publications/Latest-news/A-time-to-reflect-the-2009-Victorian-bushfires
