What a party!

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

My hus­band and I would just like to send a big thank you to a whole lot of kind peo­ple, friends, fam­ily and strangers.

We were cel­e­brat­ing two won­der­ful mile­stones in our mar­riage: Gary’s 70th birth­day and our 45th wed­ding an­niver­sary. We planned the oc­ca­sion to be held at the Canad Inns, Fort Garry (Pem­bina) lo­ca­tion and made it into a fundraiser/do­na­tion event for our lo­cal se­nior’s build­ing.

We and can­not thank ev­ery­one in­volved enough, from the won­der­ful, most help­ful staff at Canad Inn, to all our friends and fam­ily who at­tended.

Close to $5,000 was raised. We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated the over-whelm­ing fi­nan­cial sup­port, but also the love we felt as we ex­pe­ri­enced some health is­sues at about this time.

Thank you all again for show­ing us that we do know the great­est peo­ple in the world.

P.S. An­other thank you to the two girls, Lori and Rochelle, on the roof-top pa­tio at the newly ren­o­vated Met, who treated us and two friends with us to a lovely drink when they learned we were all cel­e­brat­ing our 45th an­niver­saries.
