British Club holds holiday coffee and book exchange

Twink Gates-Zimdar

On Saturday, December 2, twenty six members and one guest of the British Club enjoyed a Ladies and Gentlemen holiday coffee morning and book exchange at the home of Twink Gates-Zimdar and Bob Zimdar. Freshly baked mince pies, sausage rolls, quiche, coconut macaroons, Belgium chocolate cookies, holiday muffins, peppermint chocolate bark, fresh strawberries and grapes 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 very happy holidays and a happy, healthy New Year 2018.

Everyone thanked Twink and Bob for inviting them into their home for this very enjoyable holiday coffee morning.
