Here they have plaques and tiles which acknowledge the donations the members have made to build this building. I was very pleased to see my friend Turners and Growers. During their Oct Refugee lunch, I saw Jeffery Turner. He told me his family and the Chinese go a long way back.
I was to benefit from their generosity when my husband became a Professor there, and I was faculty wife for 16 years. My oldest girl, did her first degree there.When Dad came to visit me, and went for long walks, I asked if he went to visit his brick.
Christmas also meant fundraising. The women organised a raffles for the Starship hospital.
BBQ is a summer activity. There were yummy food, brought as pot luck, but the meat was provided. I love the ham.
This is how we celebrate Christmas. We did have Santa dressed in the traditional red.
What does your town look like at the beginning of the Christmas season? And if you are not celebrating, what does the start of December look like in your corners of the world.
