Castor holds Strawberry Tea

Castor Our Lady of the Rosary Women’s Auxiliary hosts event

By Kevin Sabo Contributor

On April 26 the Castor Our Lady of the Rosary Women’s Auxiliary hosted their annual Strawberry Tea and Bake Sale at the Golden Circle seniors club.

The “beautifully decorated” Golden Circle saw an attendance of more than 80 community members who came in for a slice of strawberry topped angel food cake with whipped cream, as well as a selection of tea, coffee and juice. The Golden Circle was decorated in a colourful spring theme, and the ladies of the hospital auxiliary had help in the running of the tea this year in the form of Principal Roger Fetaz and the Theresetta Grade 9 class, whom were serving the above-mentioned cake and coffee.

As well as the desserts, there was a varied selection of baked goods, which had been donated for the sale by many from the community, including a large selection of bread and buns from the new Silver Springs Hutterite Colony.

The cost to enter was $5 with money going to the Castor hospital for various equipment and improvements, such as to the palliative care room. There were several door prizes, won by Marilyn O’Howe, Lily Engel, Evelyn Remple, and Jackie Shipton.
