Twink Gates, British Club Publicity
On a beautiful, sunny, brisk day with blue skies, a Ladies’ Coffee Morning was held at the home of Elke Mulligan on Feb. 9, with 11 ladies meeting at her lovely home here in SaddleBrooke. It was great to get together, chat about recent events, and enjoy the camaraderie once more. Elke served a great array of cold cuts, mini quiche, a selection of cheeses and crackers, a selection of cookies, coconut macaroons, dried cherries, grapes, and fresh strawberries and blueberries with cream. All went well with fresh coffee and, of course, tea!
Everyone thanked Elke for hosting a very enjoyable morning.
Eventually, after the COVID restrictions have eased more, the British Club will resume their game afternoons every second and fourth Friday of the month. They will have a social event in the bar area at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse, which includes canasta, Mexican Train, and maybe bridge from 1 until around 4 p.m. This is followed by a social hour and a bar meal.
