It was a beautiful spring day, Easter Saturday, with a mild breeze in SaddleBrooke Ranch when 10 ladies from the British Club gathered together for a coffee morning and book exchange held at the home of Sheila Bray on Saturday, April 15 once again enjoying their camaraderie and exchanging tales of their lives since their last get together and talking about future vacations in the offing. With the freshly brewed coffee and tea, Sheila served delicious spinach and cheese quiche with fresh pink orange slices. Ethel arrived with a special treat, a freshly baked strawberry cake! Much to the delight of all!

Everyone thanked Sheila for inviting them into her home for this very enjoyable coffee morning and book exchange.
