What a wonderful weekend at ScotchColonyFest140! Thank you so much to the organizing committee who have worked for SO many months to make the weekend such a sucess. Thanks to the many volunteers and performers, here and from away, who pitched in so willingly. Thank you to those who came to celebrate their past and our present, from as far away as New York, Arizona and Alberta, or from right up the road. You made it a very special time. Thanks to Mother Nature for the perfect weather! The celebration could not have been better!

Gary and I extend our heartfelt congratulations to you all. Of course, Gary is already there and has no doubt expressed his best wishes already! But I also am so happy that you are able to celebrate this momentous occasion. Continue reading
