On the weekend of February 3rd to 5th, our local support group, Colon Cancer Kingston, manned a display of CCAC pamphlets, books and posters at Cataraqui Town Centre in west Kingston off outer Princess Street. Though attendance was light due to competing events it was steady, with a whole range of questions being asked by curious passers by.
Visitor queries about symptoms, healthy eating, screening and treatment options were engaging. Members were up to answering anything. All in all, time well spent with a fun group of people! We dialogued with locals, ate and laughed a lot. I hope we do it again.

A special thanks to those who took the time to listen and share and deliver resources to and from my home: Grace Acheson, Gwen Potts, Lana Coe, Beth & Carol Risto, Judy Nurse, Kevin Archibald, Janice Reinholz & Marcia, Doreen Jeffers, Lorraine Thompson, Betty Ball and Frank & Jeannette Pitman who came all the way from Montreal.

The best part of the weekend was seeing the spirit of friendship that characterizes team Kingston. Grace and I have been to other health fairs before but none so colourful as this!

Kudos to Carl, Frank and the Kingston crowd. Now on to the OHL Giant Colon Tour!
