2016-06 Have We changed?

"Photos from our quindecennial (look it up) + 1 visit to Oz can be seen here. Many thanks to those who sponsored or organized get-togethers and thanks to all for the joy we had in seeing everyone again after such a long time. Mixed with the joy was the sadness of missing those who had passed on."  - Harry

See the paper here.
