The 40th Anniversary was a great success.  There was a magic show for the children in the morning, which by the sounds of the cheering and the laughter was enjoyed. RC Tracks 2U set up and everyone had a try with Michel's remote cars.  There were railways set up and tours of the museum. Mother Nature did not co-operate with us so the outside activities were cancelled but the day was enjoyed by all that attended.  There was an evening program that many people attended. Doreen McEwen treated the guests to a medley of music and Ian and Arleen Douglas, Dave Smith Sr, Bruce Simpson and Willard Stuaffer spoke on the creating the the first Didsbury & District Historical Society. There were congratulatory messages from Didsbury Mayor Rhonda Hunter and MLA Nathan Cooper. Guests received a thank you gift of coffee from Mountain View Raosterie.  A big thanks to Theresa McNeil for organizing the snacks for the evening and a big shout out to all of the volunteers to put in hours to make the day the great great success that it was!
