Hi folks,

If you use google maps and type in Trillium Ridge Retirement Community, Kingston, ON, Canada

You will get a good map of the location.

We are in the retirement section of the building. The entrance is at the far end of first building you see as you drive into the complex off of Edgar St. There is no other entrance to this facility.

We will be in the common area.

I have asked and they have no chairs without arms so please bring your own.

The set list is the same as Fairmount home.

Downbeat is 1030 am this Thursday.

Hosta La Vista!

Katie and I are hosting our annual Hosta La Vista Party where we divide up many of our hostas and other perennials and give them away to those attend the party to partake in munchies, spirits and good conversation.

This year’s party will be held on Saturday May 19th from 230pm to 5pm.

All are welcome. No need to bring anything.

We’re hoping for good weather so we can enjoy being outside but the party is rain or shine.

Chris and Katie.
