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.

Martineau said the quilt was created by roughly 10 members of the group, and will be first prize in the raffle. Second prize is a set of Swiss Army luggage, while third prize is a $100 gift card.
