I have been busy with five concerts with the North Mountain chorus. There are 60 members, directed by Wendy Lapierre.
Although one concert was cancelled at the Burlington hall because of the snow storm, the snow didn’t stop us from celebrating Bill Wilson’s special birthday at the Lions Hall Dec. 18. Many guests from Berwick were able to get there as well as couples from Wolfville, Truro, Kingston and New Brunswick. It was hard to cancel or postpone as the Lions were catering a turkey dinner, which was delicious. There was also birthday cake and ice cream.
Bill’s sons, Greg and Jeff Wilson, were MCs and Bill’s grandson, Max, 3.5 years old, did a great job singing happy birthday. Bill played the trumpet, which everyone loved.
Jeff also played guitar and sang, as well as other guests. It was an open mic, we were so fortunate that the band consisting of Graham Moorehead, Matt Lunn, Brian Hazlett and Roy Thomson was able to be there!
Bob and Colleen from Shooterbug were very busy with pictures and video. Dell Fillippone did a wonderful job with the decorations – very nice.
Bill was called up on stage while his friend, Gerry Chase, sang his rendition oh Oh Lord It’s Hard to be Humble. Very funny, he did a great job. It was a great party!
I was very fortunate to get my purse back after I lost it in that snowstorm while coming from a store. A young fellow and his girlfriend found it and called my son, Dale, who returned it to me. He didn’t want me to mention his name, but I was very happt to get it back with my driver’s licence, cards and money. I want to thank him again for being so honest – a lot of nice young people out there!
