Top hat and tails, glamorous dresses and fascinators were the dress code when a group of locals recently celebrated the arrival of the royal baby at a delightful garden party, slash “baby shower.” 

The event, in aid of the Hope Centre’s Infants program, was organized by Jack and Jennie Black, and Mark and Judy Dean, and was held in the Black’s charming garden.  A baby gift was brought by each attendee and these, along with a cheque for just over $1,000, were presented to Bernice Dewinetz, Early Years Facilitator of the Hope Centre. The various gifts will be given to local newborns and the funds will be used to support the Certified Infant Massage Program.
