Lucy Maud Montgomery

Thank you for making Saturday, August 10th, 2013 one of the most memorable days in the life of a 93 years “young” women, Connie Cussons, who will never forget but rather remember with joy, sorrow, laughter and fun this inspiring presentation.

Jennifer Carroll portrayed the life of Lucy Maud as if the lady herself was speaking the words and standing before a small gathering of devotees of Anne of Green Gables.

Connie Cussons, at the tender age of 11, had enjoyed tea with Ms. Montgomery in the gardens of her home in Norval, Ontario.  An event she has fondly treasured all of her life.  Today, 82 years hence, with her daughter Lorie and son Doug at her side, in the Manse in Leaskdale, Jennifer Carroll brought to life Lucy Maud Montgomery in a performance which captivated us all in her spell bound portrayal of the woman who brought to the world “Anne of Green Gables”.

If you haven’t seen it, you will never know what you missed.  To the L.M. Montgomery Society of Ontario, congratulations.  It could not have been better.  Thank you Barb, Gwen & Kathy.

And finally to Ms. Carroll.  Jennifer, we will watch with enthusiasm and devotion as you climb the ladder of success in your chosen field.  Amazing performance from an amazing young lady.

Sincerely,  Doug Cussons, Lorie O’Neill and Mom.

August 10, 2013.
