Signing a book Maple Fest Apr 27 20130001

Thanks to everyone who helped to make the Book Signing at the Festival of the Maples such a huge success.

Many thanks to our host Leslie Wallack at The Book Nook 60 Gore St.E. in Perth and her wonderful staff Rhoda, September and Clark.

The skies were grey when we first arrived, but shortly after the sun broke through and the population of the town of Perth swelled as the streets were filled with people enjoying the mild weather and over one hundred vendors and live entertainment.

We were busy at our booth at The Book Nook seeing old friends stop by to say hello and meeting new folks, some who had read one or more of the books already and some who were buying one of the books for the first time.

Thanks again to Carole and Jody Shillolo who made the trip from Burks Falls to attend the Festival of the Maples. It’s always a treat to see Alex and his girlfriend Cassandra and our niece Meaghan and her fiance Sean and they enjoyed the exhibits and sampled some of the local fare.

Old friend Randy Gordon popped by to say hello and former 4H club member and classmate Dianne Tysick Pinder-Moss and her husband Bob came by as well for a chat.

Third-Liner Trina Conboy visited our booth and her son Sawyer was enjoying his taffy on a stick.

We also met some of the Fleming family of Bob’s Lake and had a nice chat with them.

There were many other visitors and we’d like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth yesterday.

A good time was had by all at the 37th annual Festival of the Maples and we look forward to returning next year!
