I think I will start with some of the pictures which I snapped at the social event. There were so many interesting things to see and to listen to. I stayed until the last event which ended about 7:30 or 8 p.m.
|Bean bag toss anyone?|
|the bean bags|
For those of a certain age, who doesn't remember the fun of tossing bean bags into the gaping holes and competing against others?
Such simple things but good clean fun and lots of healthy competition.

I was joined, eventually, by Mohammad and then Jeff and Andre came over. I did not see them sitting there. I knew Mohammad was coming but did not know Jeff and his friend Andre planned to be there.
What a positive afternoon it was. Everybody seemed to be enjoying the different activities. Some people played the bean bag game, some played badminton. and some played croquet.
There also were lots of vendors on the side of the house selling antique things from that era..

It was great fun to see all the fancy hats and lovely long dresses worn by the audience. People were encouraged to dress up in the 1930' s type of clothing and many did. It was so lovely to see, even some of the men did as well. In those days in Canada, people dressed modestly.
