Rain was predicted, but a warm and sunny day came instead and brought a Canada Day with perfect weather for a party at Donna’s.

Almost 60 people gathered in Donna’s backyard for a lovely afternoon enjoying the weather, the company and the great selection of food.

We owe Donna and her family a huge thanks for working so hard to make the day a success.  Sometimes we don’t realize the work that goes into organizing, planning and executing such a big event and we are very grateful for Donna’s continued gracious hospitality and warmth in hosting such a big crowd at her house.

Donna provided guidance (and a little wine) to helpers Joyce, Penny and Lesley in setting up the event and was grateful for the support of Steph and Dorothy and clean-up crew, Les, Phil, Thea, and especially Vishan who frequently and cheerfully helps with after party clean-up.

Another big thanks to Henny for providing a sculpture that she created for an afternoon raffle -the lucky winner was Billy.
