The forecast on Saturday, June 23 was dismal! Rain, rain and more rain.

But the sun chased the clouds away and the rain held off for what turned out to be a perfect few hours. More than 130 women and girls enjoyed tea and fabulous homemade sandwiches and sweets in the beautiful setting of Jane Henderson’s park-like gardens.

Many attendees wore garden hats, and for those who didn’t there were fascinators for loan. Lots of “oohs” and “aahs” ensued, memories made, and photos taken at the photo station.

Hub Hospice Palliative Care (HHPC) Board of Directors is very grateful that all funds raised at the Tea will be donated to HHPC to help them continue to offer services to the people in our community who need their unique brand of assistance. Hub Hospice Palliative Care is a “hospice without walls.” Trained volunteers provide comfort, compassion and support to our clients, their family and caregivers in North Lanark. They cannot operate without the generous support of the community.

St. George’s Anglican Church in Clayton was the sponsor of this event — you outdid yourselves! A huge thank you goes out to all of the people who helped make this event so successful.
