Nana Banana

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our Nana - Ella May Watling. The undeniable matriarch of the family, she went peacefully on February 19, 2010. With sixty years at 612 Kelly Road under her belt plus countless family dinners for birthdays, Thanksgivings, Easters and of course the epic Christmas celebrations, it was time for her to pass the traditions on.
She may have been small but sure was mighty - making an impact and leaving quite the impression on whoever met her with her spirited warmth, love and laughter. Known as 'Nana' to just about everybody, she will be sorely missed. Survived by her four children: Louise (James W.), Gerri (Colin), Margaret (Vic) and David, grandchildren: Gordon (Lil), James P. (Ryan) and Jacquie and great grandchildren: Kendyl and Callum, we will make sure that we keep our glasses at least three fingers full of rye.

We love you, Nana.

Alex Gandy Cleans Up

For those of you who were lucky enough to get to California last weekend, it was the Queen Mary Scottish Festival. Alex Gandy, a brand new member of the LA Scots Pipe Band, was down there representing Canada and JWT the best he knew how: sweeping the Professional piping contest with all firsts! That's our boy!
For a complete breakdown of results, we are providing the link juice to
If you are a member of the JWT Reedmakers Facebook Group, take a moment to listen, watch and enjoy the clip of Alex and soon-to-be-winning-the-prizes drummer, Brennan Foley (son of LA Scots bass drummer extraordinaire, Steve Foley and probably one of the most elegant and beautiful highland dancers out there, Natalie Hall-Foley) in their kitchen piping performance! Super cute.
