Below are photos taken by Welcome to Maleny member, Lara Cooper, at our candlelight vigil on 19th July 2019 in Maleny. About 80 people turned up for the ceremony which was a mixture of songs, spoken words and concluded with a traditional Macedonian dance that the whole crowd were invited to join in with. A truly heartening event on such a mournful anniversary..
