Patricia's 70th Celebration

Saturday night was wet and miserable but that didn't stop the guests from arriving at the Parish Centre to help Patricia Buffett celebrate her 70th birthday. What a delightful gathering. The evening was tinged with some sadness as Pat's children weren't able to join her as the planes had turned back due to low fog and strong winds. Nonetheless, those gathered helped as best they could to celebrate her wonderful life.
