On July 20, 2017 the GES hosted its 14th Annual Seaside Summer Picnic –   held in the colourful and spacious gardens of Anne Sims!

Once again, for the 14th year, the musical band consisting of  John Bryson, Herman Nygaard, Rick Cranston and Bob McKechnie entertained the crowd of about 50 members and guests.  Jeremy Macdonald on violin, Sam Macdonald on vocals and Mike Mead  on guitar also joined in making for a lively addition. 

And, once again again, the weather cooperated making it 14 years of no rain (which is very welcome now)! The perfect temperature may have contributed to all the dancing that resulted – or maybe it was just the great energy!

The Ecumenical Society provided  all the food, including the array of wonderful ingredients for everyone to make their own  dessert Sundae’s  – not to be confused with Sunday since it was on Thursday.  Big thanks to Chef Jason for  barbecuing the burgers and hotdogs!

Fun was had by all – and reports are that this event carried on longer than ever before!

See you all for the 15th Annual Seaside Summer Picnic!
