Sabrina here, writing my first blog post to give Genevieve a bit of a break from taking care of the whole website.
Manitoba Living History Society got invited again to the New Year's Levee at the Manitoba Legislative Building to meet the Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Janice Filmon. We got a picture on the grand staircase in all of our 1860s glory.
After frantically getting ready on site, we went through the receiving line making our best bows and curtsies to Her Honour as we were introduced. Then we mixed and mingled with other visitors while enjoying the complimentary punch, cider, and snacks. We met a number of interesting people who were equally interested in us as we wandered around in our "funny clothes." We were happy and honored to be return guests and are looking forward to many more years of attending the Levee.
