A first for me

Last year I attended a funeral on behalf of the leadership of TSA and as I entered The Salvation Army building in Carbonear NL I noticed the plaque on the wall indicated that it had been opened and dedicated by my Dad.  There was his name right on the wall. That was great to see.

Well, this past weekend, I had the privilege of dedicating and opening a new facility in Drumheller AB and my name was put on the plaque. No big deal, but it was kind of a neat feeling to think about this small connection to the role and office that my Dad held all those years ago.

It was a great weekend in that I also got to connect with Amanda, Carlyle, Fitz, and Paige. It was a very short visit and Carlyle was perplexed and disappointed that Grandma wasn’t with me. She was excited to cuddle and play and though only a few hours she knew I would have something in the suitcase for her! Of course, she was right.

Having been away from the prairie landscape for some time it was interesting and captivating to see the wide-open expanse along with the dramatic coulees that mark in unexpected ways the very flat terrain.
