Benalla Ensign

Ian McDougal performs Violet Town

By Simon Ruppert

Ian McDougal, who penned this song back in the 1970's, was invited to perform at the opening of the Southern Aurora Memorial Garden in Violet Town.

His performance capped off an event which included music from the Victoria Police Pipe Band, speeches from Federal, State and Local Government members, Southern Aurora Committee members and a first responder from that fateful day.

Pick up a copy of Wednesday's Ensign for more on this event.
