2014 was another great year living in this great city! It never ceases to amaze me how much there is to see and do in winter, spring, summer or fall.
I had a great time Volunteering again this year at a variety of events. and of course. a highlight, as alway, is sipping champagne & sparkling wines at the Winnipeg Wine Festival.
I really enjoyed watching the Aquatica synchro team practise and compete at the Pan-Am Pool. The skill and dedication of these girls and young women is absolutely amazing. And as they refine their 2015 competition routines all I can say is - you go girls!!!
At the other end of the age spectrum I have some wonderful memories visiting seniors on behalf of Home Instead Senior Care.
LIke the past couple of years, out of all the places I visited in 2014 my most favourite place to be in Winnipeg is the Assiniboine Park. The Nature Playground is first class and so much fun when I am joined by friends with grandchildren... strolling around the Duck Pond and then sipping tea at the Qualico Family Centre and Park Cafe was a perfect way to start work meetings and times with friends winter & summer... the Conservatory is always spectacular and I had the great fortune to officiate at several weddings there. The Polar Bear Conservation Centre is an amazing learning facility.
As 2014 ends and a new year begins I want to say a big THANK YOU Winnipeg. Thank you to all the dedicated volunteers I met this past year whose generousity of time enables all these great events to happen. You have each enriched my life in some way. Thank you to my friends for the wonderful gift of friendship. And thank you to my family who have cared and supported me as I live my dream.
