We send sympathy to Elva Kerry and her family in the passing of her brother Cloyne Stearman on July 30th. Cloyne was married to Jannette Dobson, formally of Bethesda (2011), and we also send sympathy to their son Robert and daughter Arlene and family.
A beautiful showing of classic cars (AACA Ontario club ) arrived at Arnold and Gail Kerry’s home on Sunday afternoon for a BBQ. A bountiful array of deserts accompanied the roast beef on a bun and salad meal. A lovely social time was enjoyed. Thanks to Arnold and Gail and Bob and Annie for hosting.
