Interesting news - Down Memory Lane 2000 - The sing-along festival of GOLDEN OLDIES was held on 20/08/2000 (Sunday) in Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.  It was organized and held for the fourth consecutive year by the Moratuwa Arts Forum. The stage is only for the musicians who accompany the singing. Singing is by the audience.  Lyrics of 101 songs were printed in the souvenir and 54 were sung. The festival began with Old Folks At Home (Way down upon the Swanee River...) and ended with Auld Lang Syne. I, for the first time joined this year's festival and had a memorable walk Down Memory Lane.  
Down Memory Lane 2001 was held on November 11, 2001.  Yes! It was fantastic. Enjoyed more than last year.
FLASH! Down Memory Lane 2002 will be held on November 10, 2002.  If you are interested, I may be able to get an official invitation. I am planning to be there this year too.  Hope to see you there.
