Twink Gates-Zimdar

On Saturday, December 3, seventeen members of the British Club enjoyed a ladies holiday coffee morning at the home of Twink Gates-Zimdar. Freshly baked mince pies, quiche, coconut macaroons, Belgium chocolate cookies, holiday muffins, peppermint chocolate bark, grapes and fresh strawberries were served with coffee and, of course, tea. Ethel Willmot distributed her homemade, delicious Christmas puddings to members who had placed orders earlier in the year. Finalizing the holiday morning, they all sat around the fire with the Christmas tree and sipped a champagne mimosa toast, wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.

Everyone thanked Twink for inviting them into her home for this very enjoyable holiday coffee morning.
