13th Annual Summer Picnic

Once again Anne Sims graciously  offered her home and garden, as she has done for the past twelve years,  for the GES Annual Summer Picnic.

John Bryson and Marilyn Smith arranged for Gabriola musicians to play and sing in Anne’s beautiful garden. This year Marilyn Smith, Jeremy McDonald, Rick Cranston, Mike Mead,  Star Bredt  and Herman Nygrad entertained us  with their lively music. Sam McDonald joined the group to serenade us with a couple of uplifting songs. Unfortunately John had recently undergone surgery and was unable to join us.

Jason Sims and his son Aiden cooked the hamburgers and hot dogs which were supplemented with trays of fresh vegetables, and ice cream sundaes.


The weather was sunny, the beautiful garden inviting,  friendships renewed and  new ones built  and all had a great time. Thanks you Anne, for your warm hospitality and  a wonderful afternoon


Three generations of one family enjoyed the party.
