Meet N’ Greet Summer Party

Pipestone Flyer

Summer vacation is over, kids are back to school, gardens are cleared, lawns are mowed, and you don’t know your new neighbour. Well, have a Meet N’ Greet – Show N’ Shine.

On Saturday September 13, 2014, Pat & Jean Trottier held one of these events. They invited family, friends and neighbours, encouraging everyone to bring someone. Along with posters and invitations, Pat & Jean also invited members of their car club, who came from (the First Generation Monte Carlo Club), Airdrie, Sherwood Park and Edmonton.

What a way to get people together. Bring your car, your family, and your lawn chair. As Jean explained, “people talk about their cars and kids.” So being good hosts, their yard was not only a display of restored and antique cars, trucks and bikes, but hockey nets, basketball hoops and a fire pit for everyone to enjoy. The event started at 3:00 pm, with people visiting, talking cars and children playing everywhere. Then at 5:00 pm, Pat & Jean, with help from their family, served beef on a bun.

What a great way to take an afternoon off from your regular routine, meeting new people and rekindling old friendships.
