Oak Bay News hosts communi-tea for 200

A recurring refrain from the day was “I saw so many people I haven’t in a long time.”

Afternoon tea with the Oak Bay News

Oak Bay News offered a free community afternoon tea as a thank-you to our readers and an opportunity for everyone to mingle and have some fun.

A recurring refrain from the day was “I saw so many people I haven’t in a long time.”

Tea-goers ebbed and flowed through the afternoon enjoying finger sandwiches catered by the ladies of Oak Bay United Church and tea delivered by many VIP pourers. Our guests were also kind enough to donate to the Oak Bay Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation and Oak Bay’s pair of riders in the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock ride this fall.
