June 21, 2016  Victorian Afternoon Tea

On a breezy Tuesday afternoon, June 21,2016, 30 Dickens lovers assembled in the lovely, sun-speckled storytelling garden of the Westmount Children’s library for our fourth annual Victorian afternoon tea.  Several of our guests came in full, elegant period costume while many sported colourful, flower-laden bonnets.

This year we were delighted to welcome musical guests, violist, Grace Takeda, and cellist, Stephen Moran, both recent music graduates of McGill University. We were treated to a 20 minute classical music interlude. Many, many thanks to these talented performers who really added to our enjoyment of the afternoon! 

Margaret, Judith E, and Wilfred did a wonderful job entertaining us with readings from Dickens’ works
