A Poem to the Land I Love.

Oh Canada
My country blessed
Anointed by the hand of God
Endowed with light and grace
A lover of all mankind
Forgiver of all sin
Oh Canada the land I love
My Mother and my friend.
A Lady's Life.

My heart is full watching our local community Art and Craft fairs
and church bazaars.

It shows how many people indulge and take pride in home made things
and they keep coming back, so this means they have the community support
which comes to spend a wonderful day with family and friends.

Community craft shows are always fascinating. We have quite a few craftsmen in our area, and have shows several times a year. There is a big Holiday Craft Show coming up next weekend.
