Once again the weather cooperated and 55 merry picnickers  gathered at the home of Anne Sims for our eighth  annual summer picnic.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, make your own ice cream sundaes, coffee and tea were supplied by the Ecumenical Society. This year we celebrated together with participants  from various church communities on the Island: The Anglican/ Lutheran, Church on the Rock,  Fellowship Church,  Roman Catholic,  United Church, and with participants  from  the Buddhist community and the Gabriola communty at large.  We also welcomed visitors from off Island, one of whom agreed to present a progran on the Jewish faith to us this fall.

We all enjoyed the fellowship, good food and the wonderful music and sing-a-long led by our GES musicians, Marilyn, John, Herman and John. Many thanks to Anne Sims for again offering her home and beautiful garden for this event.

Hope to see YOU at the picnic next summer!
