Congratulations, Lake Louisa Loonies!
Once again, our friends and neighbours from Lake Louisa participated in the annual dragon boat race to raise money for the Missing Children's Network (Enfant-Retour Quebec) and I'm so proud of our team. We came in once again! More importantly, the 22 teams raised over $100,000 for the charity which helps the search for missing children. Way to go, Loonies!
A Novel Woman, AKA Pamela Patchet, was unwittingly born and raised in Toronto instead of Paris. She worked her way from A&W carhop to political advisor to advertising executive where, on any given day, she was called upon to soothe disgruntled clients, cajole temperamental artists, juggle multi-million dollar budgets or locate trained penguins for television commercials. She married a handsome dentist for love and a lifetime of free dental care, raised three kids, and established a freelance writing career, not unlike her earlier jobs, minus the penguins.
