Foster Parents Honoured in the Wild Wild West A small western town, complete with wanted posters, a dance hall, saloon, post office and hitching posts, set the theme for this year’s Foster Parent Tea. Foster Parents and attending staff filled the dance floor for a round of line dancing led by Jaci Gecelter, a Toronto resident who has been teaching dance for several years. Ben Guy from Wilson H2 Ranch taught all the would be cattle rustlers how to calf rope. Food for Thought Catering provided an authentic, but gourmet version of western grub. Our cowboys and cowgirls panned for gold, visited a native museum, and enjoyed a day of fun and appreciation, western style. As in past years, Nuno Rocha from the Diamond Studio hand crafted a diamond pendant in the theme of the event. This year’s winner was Stacey Peck who received a diamond horseshoe pendant. This annual event is made possible by many members of the community who recognize the valuable work our foster families do with children in care. Their generosity provides the opportunity to let our foster parents know that their efforts do not go unnoticed by the public and allows us to honour them in such a special way.
