Diamond Jubilee Tea with Charlotte Small

2012 was the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth.  Celebrations took place all over the country and we celebrated in our own special way by commemorating the women of the fur trade exemplified by Charlotte Small.

Special guest presenter was Sharon Wass, who performed a dramatic monologue entitled  "My David."  This was followed by high tea consisting of labrador tea and bannock and accompanied by "fiddle" chamber music performed by local fiddler, fourteen year old Susanna Heystek.

A good time was had by all.
