Loretta & Jim White in Nova Scotia tell us:
Initially, this was to be a post-theatre party to celebrate one of our guests directing a play at our local theatre by Lorne Elliot, which was, unfortunately cancelled. However, the day we learned of the cancellation was also the day we heard about the B.B.Q., so we decided to celebrate that instead; you can’t keep a good party down!
