The Reunion Tour has begun.
So many key life markers to celebrate this year: My 70th in September, my brother Murray's 65th, Christine's brother Robert's 65th, and numerous other birthdays and anniversaries within our family. Not least among the dates to be honoured will be Christine's and my wedding day which happened on August 12th, 1967, making 45 years ago. We were married in St. Catharines Ontario and it is here to which we came yesterday. We flew on a perfect sunny day.

From Pearson International airport in a rental vehicle, a VW Jetta, we approached St. Catharines, the fruit belt district with which my childhood and youth is connected. In this city almost 45 years ago, Christine and I were married by Pastor James Vold, in Calvary Church. Our photographs were taken in the rose garden of Montebello Park. Today, Murray and Diane and Christine and I will walk through the restored rose garden before heading to Niagara on the Lake for a fine dinner.

Nostalgia oozes from the memories and the sites. We are already loving it and will have a wonderful trip around the province as we visit family and friends and the locations where we served in churches through the years.
