thumbnails of the original pictures and just click on any of them to
see the larger picture. The videos are .mp4 format. A wonderful time was had
by all and we were chasing the last hangers on out at 1am.
Nola started off the dinner with a prayer...
Let us pray.
O God of power and might, of love and beauty.
We offer to you our hearty thanks for bringing us together this night to
celebrate your many gifts to the lands of the Tartan and of the Maple Leaf.
We thank-you for friendships and dancing, for talents and prosperity, for
music and laughter; for full bellies and hearts.
We offer ourselves to Your service, aware that having received so much from
your bounty, much shall be required in our thanksgiving.
God, may Your will ever be our inspiration, the love of Your Son our
salvation and the Holy Spirit our companion and guide.

Scotia entertaining us
