A person I admire, Kath Holton, told me that some people community builders who work to improve the community they live in. I aspire to be a community builder so that the community that my family lives in is vibrant and active.
To that end I've been working as a member of the Healesville 150 steering committee to develop and encourage celebrations of the strength and diversity of the last 150 years of Healesville's history. I'm working on the website www.healesville150.org and managing the twitter and facebook pages as well as getting involve in events and trying to make some memorable moments happen for the children in our community.
Matt, Lucia and I have had great new experiences that have come along with this community building experience. Some of the H150 events that we've attended are the Winter Solstice celebration at the
Healesville Labyrinth http://mountainviews.starcommunity.com.au/mail/2014-06-24/seekers-of-the-solstice/ and the Healesville 150 Midwinter Ball which was awesome. There was an amazing band and the chance to get dressed up. I went a bit Frida Khalo inspired and Matt went as Mattman.
