The Athol Recreation Centre was transformed last Wednesday afternoon into a lovely tea room by event leader  and recreation committee member Carol King of Cherry Valley along with a divine ensemble of volunteers.  Home-baked  scones, local preserves, clotted cream  and tea  were served to a group of lovely ladies and a few stately gentleman.  Music was graciously provided by Celia Sage on the piano and by Janet Davies who sang a few proper “tea” appropriate tunes.  Lovely prizes were donated by Carol and were raffled off to 2 lucky winners!    All profits from the event  will go to support a music program at our local elementary school.


THANK YOU to ALL who supported this event!

A warm thank you to all our wonderful bakers with a special thank you to MaryAnn Saunders, Cherry Valley resident and pastry chef who donated dozens and dozens of her lovely home-baked scones!
