Last Saturday ( 20th Oct) "us kids" took them out to lunch to celebrate. It was very special.
Deirdre had organised a lot of nice touches to make the day special, including a cake and three beautiful bunches of flowers. She also arranged for Mum and Dad to receive special cards and letters from the Queen, Governor General, Premier and other local members of government.
Rick couldn't be there because he was singing with his choir at a Jazz festival on the South Coast. He also had a good time, but he had to miss this special lunch.
Sylvia has some lovely photo on her blog, which I have copied here. Thanks Sylvia!
