  • In 2009, I gathered my family and friends from Sunday School years of the 1950s and 60s in the hall of Plainville United Church, which I attended for the first 18 years of my life.

    Here my sister June and childhood bestie Brenda are telling an animated story and perhaps illustrating how important the culinary arts are for building community.

    How many pies just like that I have eaten in that very space.

    Everyone came bearing works of art and family heirlooms that had made a difference in their family or their community.
