First, some apologies, and then a bit about The Queen's Tribute

I regret that it's been so long since I posted. I was overcome with two illnesses at the same time, which set me back a couple of weeks in my endeavours to pack, sort, catalogue, and eliminate in preparation for our move to Nova Scotia.

We have always hoped to establish a permanent millinery museum on the east coast and had imagined we would settle in Charlottetown Prince Edward Island; but, God had other plans for us and we are looking forward to injoying our new life in Lunenburg.

On Monday September 19th, we are returning to the Burlington Central Library to collaborate on a tribute to Her Majesty on the occassion of her funeral.

To mark the Queen’s passing, we are inviting the public to visit the Holland Room at Burlington Central Library on the 19th between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm where there will be an all-black exhibit of millinery marvels representing Queen Elizabeth II’s seventy-year reign. Televised coverage of the day’s events will be streamed into the room.

This will be a much more somber presentation than the Jubilee exhibit we gave there in June. I'm grateful, however, for the opportunity to engage with the Burlington Public (who have been so supportive of me and of the museum since its inception in 1999), because it will one of the few remaining opportunities to do so before we scoot off to the Maritimes.
