Twink Gates-Zimdar

On Saturday, December 5, sixteen members of the British Club enjoyed a ladies holiday coffee morning at the home of Twink Gates-Zimdar. Freshly baked mince pies, mini quiche, coconut macaroons, Belgium chocolate cookies, brandied fruit cake, holiday muffins, peppermint chocolate bark, sugar free oatmeal-raisin cookies and chocolate muffins and fresh strawberries were served with coffee and, of course, tea. Ethel Willmot distributed her home made, 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 a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.

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