  1. Aus , missed both the ceremony & TV coverage . Do you remember what station / show it was on so I can maybe do an online search to see if I can find it ? Dale Russell
  2. Amanda / Doug , is there any chance of either of you posting photos of the Black Saturday Remembrance Ceremony in Strathewen from yesterday . Strathewen Community invites you, your family and friends to join with us to Commemorate 10 years on from Black Saturday. I would have attended myself , but sadly the invite was sent to an old e-mail address I hardly ever look at & I only found out about this this morning . I'm sure the rest of the Blacksmiths from Australia & around the world who contributed to the Tree Project would love to see them . Dale Russell
