Thirty one members of The British Club enjoyed a Wine, Cheese and Hors d’oeuvres party at the home of David and Pauline Taylor on Saturday, September 6. Arriving just after a Monsoon storm, members feasted on a wonderful selection of cheeses, quiches, meatballs, caprese salad and shrimp with a selection of fine wines from which to partake. For those sweet toothed members desiring dessert, there were delicious choices of English trifle and jam tarts. As usual the camaraderie of the evening was in abundance with members catching up with tales of this summer’s vacations and life in general.

Thank you, David and Pauline, for hosting this fun evening.
