Unanderra Catholic Women’s League celebrated their 11th Anniversary in style this year by holding a “Regal Afternoon Tea ” on Saturday 28th July.
Adjoining branches Dapto, Port Kembla and West Wollongong, as well as Diocesan President Sue Freestone were invited to join members and parishioners to celebrate in style.
Hats,gloves and pearls were the order of the day as well as lace tablecloths and fine china cups and saucers.
Members excelled in the catering department with ribbon sandwiches, creative cupcakes, slices and of course, scones with jam and cream!
Everyone dressed up but member Sue Meehan excelled in royal attire complete with tiara and ‘royal jewels”. Parish Priest Father Mark Okeefe joined in the festivities appearing in a court jester hat from Venice.
As it is the Queen’s 60th Jubilee guests were asked to mention any memories they had of the Queen and Royal Visit to Australia. Her visits to Wagga Wagga, West Wollongong, Portland, Blue Mountains were highlighted as well as photos shown.
The meeting room at the rear of Immaculate Conception Church Unanderra has never looked so glamorous and a fun afternoon was enjoyed by all present.
Funds raised from the afternoon will go towards the Sisters of St Joseph work in East Timor.
