Mudgee Valley Writers FAW is 29 years old
To celebrate our birthday we met at the site of Henry Lawson’s childhood home for our meeting, and then moved to Eurunderee School. The school and surrounding areas feature in many of Henry’s works. The President of the Site Trust gave us an informative talk on the history of the school and on Henry and Louisa Lawson. He then left us to enjoy our poetry readings, stories, and a song from Bob. We read many of Henry’s works and some of our own. Nostalgia was helped by damper and syrup, pikelets with rosella jam, scones and sweets.
