You are cordially invited to the Bedford Basin Yacht Club's annual New Year's Day Levee!
Tuesday, January 1st, 2012 from 12 o'clock noon until 2PM.
"The word levee is derived from the French verb "lever" which means to rise. French aristocrats used to receive guests in the morning after they had gotten up. British sovereigns held their levees in the early afternoon. Since Lieutenant Governors are the Queen's representative, they have adopted this custom in Canada. Over the years the levée has become almost solely a Canadian observance."
Help us celebrate the beginning of the 2013 season by joining us at our Levee.
Bring your family, bring your friends! We look forward to seeing you in the spirit of good cheer!
