To learn more about that brilliant concept the WELCOME WALL, go tö:

Briefly:

"THE WELCOME WALL - A NATIONAL TRIBUTE TO ALL IMMIGRANTS

In one of history's great migrations, more than six million people have crossed the world to settle in Australia.

To honour their achievements a Welcome Wall 100 metres long is being built next to the National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour (Sydney). It's close by the Pyrmont docks where millions of new settlers first stepped ashore in Australia.

As a truly national project The Welcome Wall honours migrants wherever they landed and wherever they live.

This database stores historical information about the people named on the Welcome Wall— when and how they came, who they came with and where they lived. These stories are also accessible on a computer terminal in the Museum foyer.

It costs just $105 (including GST) to commemorate your family name in bronze, and record their story on our database."

[The names of both my parents, Con George Poulos, and Envangalia (Angela) Coroneos, have been added to the Welcome Wall.

This Wall should be proclaimed a monument of profound Kytherian significance.]

I thoroughly recommend that all Kytherians place their parents/grandparents etc names onto the Welcome Wall.
