Replace Hazelwood event pics

A pictorial update from the Replace Hazelwood event in Wodonga last weekend.

If you want to know how take a stand on a serious political issue, but have some fun at the same time, this was the event for you. It featured a cake replica of the coal-fired power station, complete with 'steam' in time for the Border Mail photographer.

The Deputy Mayors of Wodonga and Indigo councils did the honours to cut up the cake after the official pictures. And we were entertained by the Next Generation, a band that formed especially for the occasion, with their impressive rendition of [previously AC/DC's] Long Way to the Top ... If You Keep on Burning Coal.
