People gather publicly for the first time in years

When people gather in public places there is always an interesting dynamic.

Some people are very earnest in what they say and do; others are quite passive – just there to see what’s taking place.

Pete Ward – Mayor’s husband, was on hand to take pictures and make new friends.

Some of the people who were in front of City Hall Sunday afternoon caught the attention of our camera lens.

The strikingly attractive Ukrainian women in full cultural garb were everywhere.

The Mayor’s husband was taking pictures and making new friends.

The Mayor was mixing with people – fully engaged in conversation with some.

The leadership from within the Ukrainian community was issuing orders and getting flags up, donations boxes in place.

It was a place to do a little politicking, to meet old friends and to be around hundreds of people and not HAVE to wear a mask.  Many did.

 

If you didn’t know where you were supposed to go – this woman, Natalia Nebesny, was making sure you did know.

    Good to see that the Mayor’s husband is still displaying his legendary sartorial splendour. The winter boots are a wonderful touch for a near Spring day and the cellphone in the ear shows that he’s busy ‘on the job’ arranging the next photo shoot. LOL!
