I’ve always loved the Third Avenue United Church in the heart of downtown. Ever since I was a bridesmaid for Gary and Ginny in the early 1980s; the magnificent interior sorta took my mind off of the really, really poofy (did I mention poofy?) light blue bridesmaid dress I was floating down the aisle in. Jim and I attended the farewell gala concert last night. A packed house and a reassuring speech by Eric Anderson, the new owner, who says the building will live on as an arts centre. Audible sighs of relief by everyone who fought for heritage status. Such a memorable concert. I just wish Rick could have been there. He’s in Whitehorse helping my folks pack up and sort their house for a move to Saskatoon.
