Old Friends in Kelowna
Gaye and Kim first met in Kelowna way back in grade 5. Forty-something years later, we returned to present Patchwork and Song at First Baptist Church, thanks to the last-minute efforts of Gaye’s former youth leader Tina, when our initial plans fell through.
It was great fun for Gaye to hook up with other old friends including Al’deen and Anne [shown here]. It was a small group this time, but we were warmly received, nonetheless. Even the two non-English speaking visitors seemed to enjoy themselves, though we did wonder what they thought of the event….maybe they’ll go home to Romania to tell others of this strange custom in Canada where someone holds up quilts and talks about them while another lady sings?!
Thanks to Ed and Nita for their warm hospitality: we certainly felt right at home.
Gull Lake: here we come!
Kim and Gaye
