It is with sadness that we say a fond farewell to former Academy member Lyla Barclay, who passed away recently of Parkinsons Disease.
Lyla and her husband, Tony, joined the Academy together in 1995, and were active members for 20 years. Lyla's involvement in the Academy was varied - running the gamut from President to Raging Grannie - and she brought enthusiasm and energy to all of her Academy activities. She will be missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Lyla at the Hot House Cafe on Monday, July 16th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. All are welcome.
The Hot House Cafe is on Front Street across from the St Lawrence Market at 35 Church Street.
