It was a Pot-luck BYOB Pub Night at the home of Ethel Willmot where the British Club celebrated a fun night Saturday, October 14. Thirty-two joined in the festivities; members, relations visiting, friends and neighbors. Everyone enjoyed the wonderful contributions of deviled eggs, shrimp, raw veggies and dip, sausage rolls, curry, chile, egg salad sandwiches and a delicious array of desserts – trifle, chocolate cake, cheese cake, fresh fruit and cheese and biscuits. There was also an opportunity to have a game of darts which many took advantage. What an opportunity to play dress up! Ethel was the Pearly Queen, Dawn Godfrey was the Queen of England, John Bray was Prince Phillip, Sheila Bray was Lady Grantham (Downton Abbey) and Angela Martin was an English Bobby. Everyone displayed their red, white and blue making it a truly memorable, fun occasion.
