Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

TheLen­noxville and District Women’s Cen­tre in­vites Women of all ages to a ban­quet in cel­e­bra­tion of In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day. Join us on Thurs­day, March 7th at 5:30pm in the Amédée- Beau­doin Com­mu­nity Cen­tre (10 Sa­muel-Gratham Street in Len­noxville) for a large scale Tea Party the likes of which you’ve never seen! The price of tick­ets is $15 for LDWC mem­bers and $20 for non-mem­bers.

In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day is a day of cel­e­bra­tion for the LDWC, its mem­bers and sup­port­ers. Ev­ery year, the Cen­tre or­ga­nizes a ban­quet; an evening of mu­sic with Ca­role Vincelette, good food, fun and com­pany. This year, the Cen­tre has re­cruited Nathalie Labrecque, owner of Bou­tique Nos­tal­gia to cre­ate the dé­cor and the at­mos­phere in the room. It is thanks to her that we have cho­sen the theme of Women at Fa­mous Tea Par­ties. Each Ta­ble will rep­re­sent its very own piece of art or me­dia re­spect­ing this theme. Our guests will have the op­por­tu­nity to choose the ta­ble they wish to be seated at (re­mem­ber that there are only 8 chairs per ta­ble, so be sure to act quickly!) We in­vite you to come as you are, to wear a spe­cial some­thing (hat; gloves etc.) or come as your favourite char­ac­ter from the Tea Party of your choice. Bring a bot­tle of wine, and in­vite your friends to join you.

Ta­ble Themes will in­clude: FILMS: Tea with

Mus­solini; Break­fast at Tif­fany’s; The Bit­ter Tea of Gen­eral Yen; Mary Pop­pins and Marie An­toinette. BOOKS: Alice In Won­der­land; Sense and Sen­si­bil­ity. ART: Five O’Clock Tea - by Mary Cas­satt; High Tea - by Ab­bott Fuller Graves; Tea in the Garden - by Henri Matisse; Ja­panese Tea Cer­e­mony - by Yu Xuanji; The Fa­mous Five - by Bar­bara Pater­son. HIS­TORY: The Royal Fam­ily Tea Party.

We will be hold­ing our tra­di­tional silent auc­tion to raise funds for the Cen­tre and would be grate­ful for any do­na­tions to this cause. Usual auc­tion items in­clude baked goods; knick knacks; crafts etc. In ad­di­tion, this year we will also of­fer a ta­ble of “celebrity” auc­tion prizes. Gifts that have been of­fered by var­i­ous busi­nesses in our com­mu­nity, such as a $100 gift cer­tifi­cate for Bou­tique Nos­tal­gia, a gift cer­tifi­cate from Stu­dio Unik for a cut and style, and more! Get a sneak peak at gifts by vis­it­ing Bou­tique En­core in the weeks lead­ing up to the ban­quet. Bring your pocket book and see how your luck plays out.

Bou­tique En­core will spon­sor 5 guests, so don’t let the ticket price dis­cour­age you! Be sure to call and re­serve your spot as soon as pos­si­ble be­cause places are lim­ited! We look for­ward to see­ing you there!
