Last week, I was the guest speaker at the Smiths Falls Lions Club Christmas Party. Everyone was so welcoming. The dinner was delicious (served by students) and the room was festively adorned. We also had fun stealing presents during a gift exchange. After I spoke, a lady mentioned, upon learning that I was to talk about one-room schoolhouses, said she was not looking forward to my presentation. Apparently I won her over as she now found my subject of interest fascinating too. Perhaps it was because I looked fascinating wearing my fascinator!
