Leigh Gibson We called ourselves the “Gibson Girls” (left to right: Leigh, Tara, Tanya). Pat Rudl accompanied us on a harpsichord. It was the first Teddy Bears Picnic in Carleton Place. We were in a tent & sang a number of songs like: Teddy Bears Picnic, Hickory Dickory Dock, Mickey Mouse Club, etc. We practised a LOT before-hand. I don’t think I ever saw this picture of us. Thank you
