For me, there’s a string of outposts stretching back from 1991 all the way to 1970. The first AACS (now ICS) August long weekend Family Conference was held in Niagara (Fort Erie) some fifty years ago. I've made a whole website for this.
I was blessed to be able to sing with Chorus Niagara for eleven years, the last two-and a half with my daughter along side. I count that eleven year concert run as one of the richest experiences of my life.
Perhaps my father was lucky. There is a place in the world that he called his own. It's a wonderful place that he could visit and remember and which never lost its essence throughout his own variegated life.
