The Main Event....

On Wednesday, we were up early and headed to Pier 21 for the day-long celebration. Grammie was thrilled when she got her VIP badge with her name on it. We walked around and saw the exhibits and took in the really cool multi-media presentation. Soon it was time for the vow-renewal ceremony. There were 18 couples that renewed their vows after 60 years of marriage. It was so cute!

Lots of mingling and listening of stories (which boat, how the couple met, etc) and then it was off to the Gala Dinner. It was a beautiful evening with celtic dancers, the Premier of Nova Scotia, an orchestra, piper and A CONGA LINE to finish the evening off!! It was a hoot, seeing all these 80+ year old women shuffling along in a line to "It's A Long Way To Tipperary". He he.
