On the morning of Shannon’s arrival we are having a stall at the Lakeside Market from 9.00am until 1.00pm to collect signatures for Shannon’s petition to Parliament, and to display BSFG and REB information.
Mayor Scott Upston will attend a Welcome event for Shannon at the John Cooper Hall, the Benalla Uniting Church from 4.00pm. At this event we will hear from Shannon about his project and also John Lloyd who will talk about local climate change actions and renewable energy developments, and hear from other people about local climate actions. Finger Food and Tea/Coffee will be available at this event. BSFG acknowledges a Benalla Rural City Sponsorship Grant which is supporting this event.
Shannon is inviting people to walk with him. A good way to follow and join his walk is through social media. The attached flyer also has live links to Facebook, twitter and Instagram.
While Shannon would appreciate your company on his walk he is particularly interested in getting your signature on his petition. The opportunity to do this in Benalla will be at our Lakeside Market stall from 9.00am to 1.00pm or the Welcome event at the Uniting Church from 4.00pm. The Food Co-op also has the petition if you wish to sign it on one of the shops open days.
One of our members is hosting Shannon on Saturday night before he continues his walk to Wangaratta on Sunday.
