On Monday 7th November Gary Chandler, Mark Campbell & Barry Burrowes went to a school in Geelong with a member of the Shrine Education Program. Gary gave a talk about the Light Horse while Mark & Barry had the horses outside and explained their roll in the Australian Light Horse. The horses taken were Digger & Miserable. Gary received an email that night from a family who used to live at Kingston and whose son went to the school where our members did the talk. It was good to know that the kids were listening and taking in what was being said and done. Mark, together with the rest of the members at the meeting think we should do more of this work and help foster re-newed interest from a new generation. We have also had positive feedback from the teachers at the school.
