SMUG finally made it off to Belfast and The Dr. John M. Gillis Memorial Lodge. After a stormy day on Wednesday when we had planned to get to the Home, we were forced to cancel due to blinding driving conditions. However today arrived big and bright and off we went with a great contingent of 18 Smuggers, armed with book and ukulele, we pulled another one off in fine style with the help of Bob and Darlene just home from the far north. We were pleased too, to have Lynda Sharpe, pianist and organist, lend her fingers to some rocking Christmas music that was enjoyed by almost all of the residents at the home. Owner and administrator, Douglas MacKenzie, thanked us for coming again and provided a great lunch of juices, cakes and cookies, along with two kinds of fudge and cheeses......this always makes our day brighter. Thanks to everyone at the home, both staff and residents, for their kind and generous hospitality.
