British Club ladies’ coffee morning and book exchange

Twink Gates-Zimdar

At the home of Joan Reichert on Saturday, February 11, eleven members and two guests of the British Club welcomed Joan’s sister Gillian Sharp, visiting from New Brunswick, Canada and friend Angie Muto from Sicily. The happy throng enjoyed a delightful Valentine’s coffee morning. As well as coffee and tea, of course, Joan served a delicious selection of Valentine’s goodies which included double chocolate log, coconut/chocolate squares, brownie bites, strawberry swirl cheesecake, shortbread cookies, chocolate fingers, fresh strawberries, cheese squares, cherry tomatoes and olives.

While others around the nation were suffering the chilly weather, it was so nice to enjoy a beautiful, sunny morning here in SaddleBrooke.

Everyone thanked Joan for inviting them into her home for this very enjoyable Valentine’s Coffee morning and Book Exchange.
