Strawberry Tea to be held at Seniors’ Centre this year

Strawberry Tea to open Lake Days will be hosted by the Seniors' Centre in conjunction with Lady of the Lake

One of the earliest proceedings in this year’s Lake Days will be the traditional strawberry tea which this time around has a new venue.

The tea will be held on Monday June 2 at 7 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre in Lake Cowichan.

Tickets are $2 at the door and the evening will be hosted by the Lady of the Lake Society alongside the seniors, with this years Lady of the Lake candidates set to deliver their sponsor speeches.

“The Lady of the Lake girls will be there and the seniors will put on some kind of entertainment as well,” said Denise Allan, chair of the Lady of the Lake Society. “For years, the strawberry tea was held at Lower Hall but it’s been moved this year to the Seniors’ Centre. So it’s the same traditional strawberry tea just moved to a new venue.”

Allan and everyone involved is hoping for a large turnout of people, with all nine of this year’s Lady of the Lake candidates present on the night.

“Anyone can go. There’s a good amount of seats in there so we’re hoping for a full house. Family, friends, seniors, everyone is welcome. It will be about an hour and a half long and there will be strawberry shortcake, tea and coffee, all served by the seniors.”

The Lady of the Lake candidates will speak about their individual sponsors, each illustrating a brief history of that sponsor.

“Each girl will do a one minute speech partly on their sponsor and partly on themselves,” said Allan.”
