On Tuesday afternoon, June 10, 2014, 27 Dickens lovers met in the beautiful Storytelling Garden of the Westmount Library for a lovely Victorian Tea. Despite a rainy forecast, the skies were perfectly clear.
The table was set with fine china and decorated with potted scarlet geraniums.
Our repast, lovingly put together by a selection of our members, consisted of mixed berry salad; cucumber, egg, tuna and smoked salmon sandwiches and a variety of cookies and squares. Buttery scones were served with individual servings of cream and jam. Plenty of iced tea was on hand to quench our thirst.
Margaret Nicolai, Judith Elson, Barrie Baldaro, Clive Brewer and Andrew Macdougall did a wonderful job entertaining us with readings from Dickens’ works.
