British Club hosts morning coffee and book exchange

Twink Gates-Zimdar, Publicity

On Saturday, March 9, it was a beautiful sunny, but chilly day in SaddleBrooke when nine ladies of the British Club met for a coffee morning, book and fashion exchange at the home of Susan Biestek. As per usual everyone enjoyed the camaraderie of friends, exchanging tales of current events in their lives, trying on the different clothing from the fashion exchange rack and choosing handbags and jewelry also in the exchange.

As well as coffee and tea, of course, Susan served a delicious selection of home-baked goodies which included a Strata Casserole, Victoria Sponge cake, Banana Bread and chocolate chip cookies.

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