A central service to remember the people and communities impacted by the February 2009 fires is being held on Sunday 6 February 2011.
The inter-faith service was arranged after consultation with affected community members including the bereaved. Former police chaplain, the Rev Jim Pilmer PSM, will oversee the service which recognises the significance of the anniversary to Victoria.
The service has been arranged to provide an opportunity for bushfire affected people who lost loved ones, or who live in other parts of Victoria, to gather in a central location to mark the anniversary.
The timing of the service respects the wishes of those who will mark the occasion at memorial events planned by the affected communities for 7 February 2011.
Your attendance and the attendance of other representatives from your organisation is most welcome. There is no need to respond to this e-mail, however if you are planning on attending we recommend arriving 20 minutes prior to the start of the service.
