2017 Victorian Afternoon Tea

On Sunday, February 26, 2017, a Victorian Afternoon Tea was held at
Vandermeer Nursery (Lakeridge Road and Bayly Street) in Ajax.
Claire Nicklin organizes this event as a fundraiser to help the cats of Second Chance.
The Afternoon Tea offers something for everyone. Several varieties of tea were available,
as well as coffee (compliments of Starbucks located in the Ajax Durham Centre),
to go with the tasty sandwiches made by Erst and Janet Buchelor and cookies and scones
provided by Kathy and Claire. There was a best "Victorian Hat or Costume" contest;
numerous vendors offered items for sale; the bake sale – home baking – was very popular
and the Silent Auction offered a selection of enticing choices.

Attending the Victorian Tea is an opportunity to shop at Vandermeers for plants and
gardening supplies and see the very colourful Koi and the turtles.
The Victorian Afternoon Tea at Vandermeer Nursery where it is so pleasant and
warm with sun streaming in through the greenhouse roof is a lovely way to spend a cold February afternoon.
