The well attended Manoir du Lac Harvest Tea put on by the Manoir’s Ladies Auxiliary raised $1,200, which will go towards paying for the dual purpose snack and pop machine that the Ladies Auxiliary had installed at the Manoir earlier this year.
“I’m delighted that everyone had such a good time,” says event organizer Pat Penner. “It is so nice to have the support of the community; the residents and the Ladies Auxiliary really appreciate it.”
Along with a bake sale offering a large variety of donated baked goods there were also a number of door prizes and a 50/50 draw.
Roland Dubrule won a door prize of a scarf that was donated by Hector and Angie Goudreau.
Alice MacMillan won the Alberta Plaque, also donated by Hector and Angie Godreau.
Cecile Benoit won a novel tractor-windmill donated by IDA.
Rita Bjornson won a selection of bath products, handmade soaps donated by Michelle Holden.
Niketa Girard won a child’s hat knitted and donated Linda Lambers.
The fifty-fifty prize, valued at $100 was won by Rolland Boisvert.
“People were also delighted with the kids, Elizabeth, Mary Katherine and Ocean who took turns opening the door when people arrived. Everyone said how nice it was and how polite they were,” says Penner.
Another attraction at the Harvest Tea was the opportunity have a selfie or photograph taken with a life size cutout of Pope Francis, for which a number of people lined up to capture the moment.
