On the 'Drum Road'...
Well, just to add to an already hectic schedule, we accepted an invitation to take the Dondi tour to Hoards Station, near Campbellford, on Sunday, May 3rd, to help the fine folk of Hoards UC celebrate their 138th anniversary as a congregation. After participating in worship and presenting the message of the Dondi Project, we shared a wonderful luncheon and then a drum circle with about 35 participants. It was an honour to have two female elders of the community(96 and 97 years young respectively) drumming and making music - one had her daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter with her - four generations of women from one family - very special!!!
A free-will offering was taken up and we secured their interest as a venue for the Drumathon - all-in-all a very fun and successful outing on the eve of the tour, in a most beautiful part of Ontario!!!
