Every spring, the LowKong society schedules a day to visit the cemetery, to pay respect to our ancestors. The meeting at Pine Hills Cemetery was set, for either rain or shine. On this day, everyone was huddled under umbrellas in the rain.
After a few speeches, the roasted meats, baked goods and fresh fruit was served as a picnic lunch.
It’s a tradition to have at least a little snack to honour ancestors. It’s not quite so relaxed when everyone is under umbrellas.
We went home for a few hours, and then for the regular evening banquet. Dinner, in the usual restaurant, was more predictable.
