I really should get out more often!
I was giddy with delight to attend this event in the village of Brooklin, Ontario. It was a celebration of Canada 150, our country’s 150th birthday since confederation.
It was — of all things — a fashion show. (I say that because I haven’t been to one in decades.) The models were almost all people I know, from their 30’s to …. well, I didn’t dare ask!
There were a few men in the audience. Some were in the show, escorting the models, looking happy and debonair.
This elegant fundraiser was organized by the women and men of St. Thomas’ Anglican (our family church) in the village.
The clothes are from “Connie’s” in the village and the team, led by Nancy and Sharon, did a great job.
The woman below is our priest, Canon Claire Wade. A star in last year’s show, she chose observer status this year. (And still looks stylish!)
The photo below is with friends and it’s one of the few times I wasn’t eating. The food was delicious. (Did I say that before?)
Unfortunately, I had to leave early. But I ate a lot, applauded a lot, wished I could afford to buy several of the outfits, and totally enjoyed myself. What more could a person ask?
Congrats, Nancy and Sharon!
