St. Andrew’s Parish Hall will be hosting one of the first sesquicentennial events of the year in town, a Canada 150 afternoon tea on Saturday, April 29. The event is in recognition of the nation’s 150th birthday.

Visitors are invited to to dress in their favourite fashions of any era between 1867 and 2017, though organizers say that’s certainly not a requirement. The afternoon is based on the theme of St. Andrew’s church – which dates back to 1794 – Grimsby, Ontario and Canada.

“And our place in all of these,” said Liz Fulford.

Tickets are now on sale for the tea, and those interested in going must purchase them ahead of time. There will be no tickets sold at the door.

The cost is $20 per person, and in addition to tea and snacks there will also be a silent auction.

It runs from 2 to 4 p.m. For ticket or event information email info@standrewsgrimsby.com or call 905-945-8894. Tickets are also available at the church office Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to noon.
