With spring weather arriving, the Legion celebrated the season with their Spring Tea, held Monday afternoon, May 8 in the Legion Hall.

The goal of the event was to give people an opportunity to socialize and enjoy spending time together, said Legion member Evelyn Shursen, who helped organize the event.

“That’s what a tea should be all about, sitting and visiting and enjoying the day,” Shursen said.

Shursen and other volunteers helped organize for buses to shuttle people to and from the local seniors’ centres so they could attend the tea.

“About fifteen to twenty ladies helped put this together,” said Shursen, adding that each of the volunteers baked pound cakes, which were served with real whipped cream and strawberries alongside the tea.

In addition to socializing and tea drinking, the event also included raffle prizes, which were donated by volunteers or local businesses.

There was also entertainment provided for the event, which included comedy, songs, and even a few clown tricks, all courtesy of Big Valley performer Rosco.

Rosco is a regular entertainer on the Alberta Prairie Railway steam train, where he has been performing his clown act for the past 17 years, according to Shursen.

This clowning experience was evident as he made flowers out of balloons to give out to women in the audience, or balloon animals to give to some of the children in attendance.
