The members of the New Horizons Club welcomed spring with a “High Tea” on May 8, at the Burritts Rapids Community Hall. With their tea, traditional scones, strawberry jam and whipped cream, members were served a variety of fancy sandwiches, petits fours and other such goodies to satisfy any person’s sweet tooth. One might almost have thought for a moment that they were enjoying high tea at the Chateau, as the servers, dressed in black and white, made their way around the tables to pour their tea or coffee from silver teapots.

Special thanks are due to those who prepared and served the delicious tea, including Janet Glaves, Carol Scales, Ruby Schryburt, Golida Tym, Karen Wattie, Karin and Klaus Wierspecker. Kudos to all the ladies and gentlemen who sported hats, white gloves, and special dresses for the occasion.

The annual picnic will take place at the Burritts Rapids Community Hall on May 22 at noon. Bring a picnic lunch and your lawn chair. Desserts, tea and coffee will be provided. Come and meet new friends. This will be the last gathering until September, when the 2019-2020 membership year kicks off with a potluck lunch at noon on September 11.

All seniors 55 plus are welcome to join this active group. For information, call Janet at 613-259-2737 or Shirley 613-258-9315.
