WHAT A NICE DAY

...had a beautiful lunch at the invitation of the Lieutenant Governor and Tourism NB. What a tremendous opportunity to enter
"Old Government House" in Fredericton NB - spectacular! I was incredibly fortunate, also, to dine with Mary Majka who was being honored, nationally, as Volunteer of the year. Now just in case you're not familiar with Mary:

"Mary Majka is synonymous with natural, cultural and heritage preservation in New Brunswick. Her ongoing volunteer involvement in conservation and heritage protection started when she immigrated from Poland in 1951 and spans half a century. Among other projects, she wrote a book about Fundy National Park, founded the Albert Country Heritage Trust, co-founded several stewardship-related organizations, was instrumental in the creation of the Machias Seal Island Bird Sanctuary and the Mary's Point Shorebird Reserve, and saved from demolition and restored several heritage sites that are now important tourism sites. Mary Majka has devoted her life to sharing her love and passion for Canada and the East Coast."

As you may or may not know, both Arnold and I have been involved in wildlife rehabilitation for many years. How pleasurable to spend an afternoon seated with this incredibly delightful, accomplished and passionate woman, as well as our distinguished hosts!

Aside from being treated like royalty on a very rare occasion away from London-Wul I (or should I say London-Wul) was presented with this beautiful award as selected by the Tourism Industry Association of Canada. Whew, what a nice day.
