Afternoon sunshine greets guests for Valentine’s Dessert Tea

Strawberry shortcake was the star Sunday at the Valentine’s Dessert Tea in Williams Lake.

Sunday’s afternoon sunshine was a welcome greeting for many residents attending the Valentine’s Dessert and Tea at the Seniors Activity Centre.

Organizer Tina Derksen prepared a delicious strawberry shortcake for the event and, with help of several volunteers, served guests in attendance.

There were door prizes to be won, plus a chance to get in on the Senior Stitchers’ raffle for a quilt to be claimed during the March 15 Shamrock Luncheon at the SAC.
