Sunday 24th May 2015

ASG members and interested members of the community met Berry Park, Narrabeen where a Welcome to Country was given and a small talk, then a silent walk to the Scout Hall at Bilarong Reserve, Wakehurst Parkway. It was a journey of healing to remember the Stolen Generations, the children and their families, the meaning and repercussions of this to all Australians today. A Smoking Ceremony greet us as we arrived at the Scout Hall.
