VIDEO: The A-Frame Bookstore’s Garden Party was a summer treat

Party featured live music from Georgia Murray and other North Island talents

The A-Frame Bookstore in Port McNeill held its annual Garden Party, and was it ever an event to remember. The weather was sunny and hot dogs and hamburgers were served on the A-Frame Church and Bookstore’s new deck, which also provided the perfect view of the stage where many talented Port McNeill musicians entertained the crowd during the party.

Children played in the garden while many people sat underneath a shady tree and enjoyed the food and music throughout the afternoon. Jim and Judy Mitchell, a full band with Riley Bateman as vocalist, Gordon Henschel, and the very talented Georgia Murray were a few of the musicians who performed. Books and baked goods were available to purchase by donation throughout the event which went towards supporting the A-Frame Bookstore.
