Homecoming Lismore 2009


Now that we are coming down to earth after a marvellous week of entertainment, good food and drink, history and genealogy, story telling, walking and good weather, it is time for the organising group (Jennifer Baker, Donald Black, Margaret Black, Laura Gloag, Bob Hay and Barbara McDougall) to thank the very many people who made it a success.
