High Tea served in the park in Saltair

New event brings out numerous volunteers and generates more than $230 in donations

More than 70 people came out to enjoy High Tea in the Park at the Saltair Community Centennial Park on Mother’s Day.

Under the large white tent that was set up in the park, there were tables decorated with lace tablecloths over pastel colours. Spring flower arrangements adorned the tables.

Family, friends, neighbours and others stopped by for a cup of tea and an amazing assortment of High Tea treats.

“What a lovely way to spend an afternoon,” noted Cowichan Valley Regional District Area G Director Lynne Smith, who hosted the event. “It was a perfect opportunity for those that came to catch up with other residents and to meet new people from the area.”

The High Tea in the Park was a free event, with donations collected amounting to $231 for Cops for Cancer.

Several volunteers were involved in organizing and creating this new event in Saltair. Smith expressed her appreciation to Janet Evans and others who volunteered to make it such an amazing event.
