Ms HALL (1:47 PM) —I would like to pay tribute to the Spencer family—Alan and Margaret. Each year they light up their house, Graceland, at 94 Violet Town Road, Tingira Heights. This will be the eighth year that they have been prepared to put lights on their house and raise money for charity. This year they have 65,000 lights which they purchased in the United States. They also have an Australian flag flying. Last year it was 55,000 lights. Each year, the display provides a spectacle for the people of the region. People travel from as far afield as Sydney and the North Coast of New South Wales. It has featured on Burke's Backyard,and buses from all round the area visit. There are two reasons the Spencer family do this: firstly, because they believe in promoting the spirit of Christmas and, secondly, because they raise money for charity. To date they have raised over $200,000, and they should be congratulated.
