Valiant act at the Barge Fes­ti­val

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

I was at The Forks for the Barge Fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing the 200 years of the Selkirk Set­tlers. By the wharf, it was lit­er­ally packed with peo­ple, el­bow to el­bow.

What a won­der­ful bunch of cour­te­ous peo­ple all in one place, peo­ple of all races.

I had my shop­ping cart with me to tote my lawn chair and cush­ion. I left early, and when I turned around to leave, there was no space to pull my cart through.

Ev­ery­one was sit­ting on lawn chairs and a few in wheel- chairs. I stood puz­zled for a few sec­onds. A very nice, hand­some guy, about 30 years old, lifted up my cart, lawn chair and all, over the heads of the other spec­ta­tors in or­der for me to pro­ceed on my way.

A big thanks to this won­der­ful guy, and all of the cour­te­ous peo­ple who at­tended the fes­ti­val.
