Historic Gardens Dinner and Auction 2010

Tonight was the night of the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens annual fundraising Dinner and Auction. Because I am home fairly late, this will be a short post. The Dinner and Auction is usually an entertaining evening and tonight was no exception. As usual, there was an excellent dinner which was sandwiched by a silent and live auction. Like everyone else in the room, I was happy to be able to help (if even in a small way) the Historic Gardens remain an integral part of Annapolis Royal. The photographs in this post are a fairly random selection of the events this evening. Congratulations to the staff and volunteers who make this a successful event every year.

A personal highlight of this event is listening to the interesting pronunciations of Latin plant names by the master of ceremonies Greg Kerr, MP for West Nova. Despite the fact that he was putting on a brave face, I think that some of the English words were even starting to elude him by the end of the night. For those who keep track of such things, you will notice that I have also included a couple of images of Stephen McNeil, MLA for Annapolis and Leader of the provincial Liberal Party. I actually had the opportunity to have a nice chat with both of our elected representatives and did not harangue either of them about heritage issues. Next time...?

All for now,
