Lasqueti Quilt Unveiled

Considering how fast news travels on this island, it was amazing that we managed to keep the surprise party for Pat Forbes a secret.

But it really was a surprise, coming a good five months after her actual birthday. She walked in to the arts centre under some duress, having been brought there against her wishes - she just wanted to be dropped off at her car, after attending a funeral at the south end.

Pat handled it all with grace, true to form. She mentioned that she felt uplifted after a sad beginning to the day. The people on this island are indeed some of the kindest and most caring you could ever hope to come across.

It was a sweet event. Lots of well-wishers, and the presentation of the quilt made in her honour.
