Lady of the Lake program heartwarming

Editor: It was so heart-warming  to experience the love and support that the community of Lake Cowichan gave to all the participants in the contest for the title “Lady of the Lake” at the Ball on Friday night.

They expressed their appreciation for the efforts of all the young ladies who were vying for the title in a way that I think is very unusual in this day and age.  One couldn’t help but feel that the audience was pulling for all the girls, regardless of who were their sponsors, and what were their chances of winning.

A community spirit that demonstrates what a generous people are the residents, and how lucky are the children who are raised in such an atmosphere.
