Tathra & District Bushfire Anniversary

Sat 23 Mar 2019 11:55 am to 11:55 am

  • Tathra

As a community, we have a chance to come together to remember the bushfires of 2018 in Reedy Swamp, Vimy Ridge, Tathra and Thompsons, and in Bemboka and Yankee’s Gap. We want to thank those who helped in our very great hour of need, to remember those who are not with us anymore and to be thankful for the great place we live. On Sunday, March 17th, please join with us if these events will help you remember what is good and great about our community and valley and to take courage and support for the ongoing challenges.
