Victorian Afternoon Tea 2019 - June 25, 2019
29 of us gathered at the Burgundy Lion Pub's tea room
for our annual end-of-the-year Victorian afternoon tea
Ellie gave a review of the year's activities and a preview of coming "attractions" next year.
We gathered in their lovely, sky-lit, indoor terrace which was decorated with all kinds of greenery, china tea pots and cups and saucers
We all selected our favourite teas from a very complete tea menu
First we were served with a layered platter filled with sandwiches and savouries
and then served with a three-tier dessert stand filled with scones and sweets
Judith gave us a very informative and entertaining talk on the "History of Tea"
We all learned so much!
Louise amused and educated us with a "History of the Cucumber Sandwich"
Sylvia gave a heartfelt and inspiring toast to Dickens and to Ellie
Ellie welcomed our guest Michelle Lefebvre from the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation
We presented Michelle with a cheque for $850.00 in support of "Tiny Tim" fund
Thanks to all who attended and help make this event so special! Have a great summer and see you next year!!!
