Join Mayor Paisley Donaldson and members of Council at the Gravenhurst Opera House on Tuesday May 31st to celebrate the ’32nd Annual Mayor’s Tea’.
The Mayor’s Tea is held in recognition of Senior’s Month, but it’s an event the entire community can take part in.
Doors open for this annual tradition at 12:30 pm with entertainment starting at 1pm and tea to follow, (approximately 1:45pm). This is an opportunity for our community to enjoy a complimentary afternoon of entertainment, socialization, fellowship and of course tea and other refreshments in the stunning historical theatre located in the heart of downtown Gravenhurst.
“I look forward to seeing everyone’s smiling faces, especially after another long winter,” said Mayor Donaldson. “This is a great opportunity to catch up with community members and pay homage to all of our wonderful seniors, thanking them for their many contributions to our
Town,” added the Mayor.
This year’s high tea will also feature three types of finger sandwiches to enjoy; tuna, ham and cheese and of course egg salad. Sandwiches will be provided by Impact Muskoka. Don’t forget to try a cookie or square baked specially by Community Living South Muskoka! As for beverages, ‘tea’ will be the star of the party, but coffee and a refreshing homemade punch will also be served.
As part of the afternoon’s entertainment the Fernglen Fiddleheads will be performing live on stage. The band consists of fiddles, guitar, banjo, bass, percussions, and a piano. Traditional fiddle tunes such as jigs and reels form the foundation of the band’s repertoire. Music that is fun, spirited, and sure to set you in motion and your toes a tapping!
Immediately following the entertainment, everyone is invited to the Trillium Court for complimentary refreshments and an assortment of delicious desserts, served by Council and the Recreation, Arts and
