The Annual Ladies Christmas Tea was once again held at the McBride Evangelical Free Church. After a few years’ absence from the Christmas event calendar, the evening was attended by close to 100 ladies of all ages. The gatherings started as a smaller event over 20 years ago. Ladies would meet in a home for carols, gift exchange, food and fellowship. Moving to the church has provided the opportunity to open it up to all ladies of the community.

Cousins Codi and Teagan were dressed in their finest as they carefully selected their sweet treats from the dessert table at the tea. /ANDREA ARNOLD
