It was certainly a great way to kick off summer of 2014!
FWE Garden Party 2014 held it’s year end celebration at the stunning Roundhouse Community Centre. There was a welcoming atmosphere to greet you at the door with the lure of delicious aromas of appetizers awaiting our palates to put them to the test. Whist I wandered and chatted with fellow FWE visitors, I had the pleasure of viewing some of the photos taken by the uber talented and lovely, Rhonda of Rhonda Dent Photography. She was onsite offering head shots to event goers to update their social media profiles. Her portfolio is certainly worth checking out if you are in search of a photographer.
The inspiration boards were a treat, although I had to make my way back once I came up with something clever to say!
Guest Speaker, Peter Armstrong of Rocky Mountaineer and FWE Honourary Council Member shared some wise words of wisdom and key ways to approach business while all of us event goers enjoyed our Savoury City canapés and Clos du Soleil Winery and Left Field Cider sips.
I found Peter’s advice; “Help others along the way … you don’t get somewhere on your own.” a good reminder. Far too often we get caught up in our own mission to take the time to stop and reach out to someone who could use just a moment of our time or skills to tackle a hurdle in their way. Most often, those are the times we gain something even more valuable than what we offer someone else. I look forward to the coming year of what FWE has to share!
