  1. Thank you Susan, Gerard, the Echo and Mullum for celebrating the 25th anniversary of the markets my Dad Maurie fought hard to create in support of the Museum. MAurie Summers was a doer and his determination to get the Mullum markets up and running is one of my proudest memories of him. Thanks also to Robyn and Chris for going aling with him and naming the park after him just before he died. Thanks for the memories Mullum. I wish I had been there to celebrate with you.
