Volunteers prepare sandwiches and sweets for the Royal Canadian Legion ladies auxiliary Christmas tea.

Christmas tea fundraiser

Ladies auxiliary for the Legion hosed a Christmas tea.

The Ladies Auxiliary to the Castlegar Robson Branch 170 of the Royal Canadian Legion held its annual Christmas Tea Saturday, Dec. 12. In spite of the bad weather, the event was attended by more than 90 people. “We had a good tea, for such a rainy, awful day,” said ladies auxiliary volunteer Judy Brown.

The tea was a fundraiser for projects of the ladies auxiliary including buying Christmas gifts for residents of the Brock Farhni and George Derby Veterans Homes in Vancouver. Besides the tea, coffee, sandwiches and desserts, the day also included a bake sale, book and puzzle sale and a hamper draw.

“We would like to thank the public for coming and supporting the legion, auxiliary and the veterans,” said Brown.
