After last year’s highly successful Seniors’ Tea, hosted by the Corporation of Hamilton, the event will be taking place again this year.

Last year the event was organized in honour of Heritage Month and as a way to give back to seniors, explains Kevin Smith, events and marketing coordinator at the Corporation of Hamilton, who organized the event last year.

“This year the event is being pushed back into June as an extension to Heritage Month,” explains Thomas Lightbourne, who is organizing the event this year.

Hats

Seniors are invited to the event, which will take place in Victoria Park from 2pm-4pm on Friday, June 6.

“We are asking the ladies to wear their favourite hat,” says Mr Lightbourne. “The lady with the best hat will get the chance to win the flower arrangement at her table.”

Attendees can look forward to music and entertainment and giveaways, as well as dignitaries helping with the service of tea.

Last year, Governor George Fergusson was on hand at the event to help serve tea along with the Mayor of Hamilton and other dignitaries.

Along with tea, the event will include an assortment of finger sandwiches, fruit and cheese.

There will also be a tent set up in Victoria Park to keep the attendees under cover.

“It’s a great opportunity to come out and enjoy being in the beautiful setting of the park and getting out to socialize,” says Mr Lightbourne.

Seniors are asked to RSVP to Mr Lightbourne by emailing tlightbourne@cityhall.bm or by calling the Corporation of Hamilton on 292-1234.
