We had a funtastic evening on Wednesday, July 31, when two dozen parishioners gathered around the firepit on our front garden patio to sing campfire favourites.
The presence of 11-month-old Lucas was a good motivator to sing childhood favourites such as "If You're Happy and You Know It," while the boomers in the circle also enjoyed revisiting classics such as "Take Me Home, Country Roads," "Leaving on a Jet Plane," "Edelweiss" and many more.
Singing was at times compromised by the simultaneous ingestion of roasted marshmallows or wieners, and, proving that it's never too late to learn something new, Barry Goodwin was gratified to learn the art and craft of cooking campfire s'mores from Sandra Martin.
The evening was anchored by our campfire maestro Lynley, who along with his guitar kept us all together and relatively in tune. Peggy would like to take credit for the provision of excellent campfire jokes, but suspects that as all may not agree on their quality, discreet silence may be the more dignified course.
Our singalong was much enjoyed, with attendees calling for a repeat evening soon.
