Saturday, Nov 18 was the “Baby It’s Cold Outside” inaugural event for the Baby Point BIA and we were so pleased to participate. We had some stellar entertainment – a packed house for the Annette Street Choir and musicians Michael Menegon, Kayt Lucas, Frank Prather and Will treated guests to a day of inspiring music to accompany their chocolate experience. Lots of art afficionados came by to check out the AG Menegon collection (pictured below) and we had the pleasure of meeting so many people in the neighbourhood. It was only afterwards, that I realized I forgot to tell anyone about the Santa Letters (parent-composed letter from the big guy that are placed inside hollow santas to help your little ones enjoy the magic a little longer), but there were so many people it was non-stop just keeping up. Will be posting pictures later of all the folks enjoying the day. Thanks to everyone who participated, the BIA for organizing the event and of course, all of you for supporting it. Hope to see you all again and again.
Art Exhibit # 1
The Albert Menegon collection is a great example of what the individual can do over time when collecting art. Mr. Menegon has worked in photography and painting and has always been a devout jazz enthusiast. Over the past 30 years Albert has collected a modest yet inspiring group of Canadian works of art. This collection is recognition of his support of the arts and art appreciation as well as an encouragement to all art lovers who value the important role art plays in all our lives.
