Summerlea's annual anniversary dinner took place at 6 PM Friday, 5 February
in Acadia hall. The dinner included a murder mystery to keep us on our toes
while the delicious beef stew dinner was served and devoured.|
The number of tickets available was limited to 120, and that's about the number who were there to fill Acadia hall.
The mystery unfolded in Camp Holly Hills, an adult treatment centre in the Laurentians for those who yearn for less complicated times - the golden age of rock n'roll. Unfortunately there seemed to be some dissension in the ranks as, first one, then another staff member encountered a shortness of life.
The audience was invited to listen to the clues that came forth as Doc McCoy interrogated the staff and guests of the camp. As dessert time approached, all were given a piece of paper on which to write their conclusion as to the guilty party (parties?).
Several folks came up with the correct solution and from the correct answers one was drawn to give the prize to June Messenger.
Many thanks to Marion, Undeg, Mary, Bonnie, Sheila, Janet and all the others who spent countless hours in the kitchen all week to prepare the meal, during dinner and cleaning up afterwards. And thanks Barb, Nancy, Kate and the others who served. And we didn't get a photo of any of them!
|The diners. The action took place in the wide centre aisle.|
Activities director Brad and Dance instructor Diane.
(Diane has kleptomanic tendencies. Diner Gerry looks askance!)
Camp director Peter.
Peter's wife, camp psychiatrist Judy.
Apparently she has been treating guest George for some Adolescent Syndrome.
(Do they really like it?)
Several folks were correct.
From them a draw gave June Messenger the prize.
(the snap shooter missed it!).
Then the troupe took a bow.
Doc McCoy told us several of them were
late replacements due to illnesses (well done!).
Thanks again to all those who made it possible for the rest of us to enjoy!
