The May Extravaganza - otherwise known as the Spring Fling - took place May 21 in the Keeler Centre in Colborne.  Three hundred and twenty tickets were sold and they came.  Good food, good drinks (most of it coffee) and good snacks were provided by Black Dress catering - Donna Rusow's catering company based in Colborne.  There was entertainment, speeches and socializing - as promised.  But the main event was the talk by Bob Abrames - Voyageur.  More than just talking, he walked amongst us and kept us laughing and amazed.  Above is a slide show of some photos taken at the event.
