back from Ottawa in time to attend the annual Seniors Tea hosted by the Beiseker Station Museum Society at the Golden Years Town and Country Club. Our theme this year was the honouring of the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede! All the society members were decked out in their western finery. Coffee, Tea and cake was served.
Entertainment was provided by our very own Verlin Rau. Verlin is a very talented singer and song writer and one of Beiseker's best kept secrets! I always enjoy his music whenever I get a chance to hear him. He sung some of the standard old time favorites plus a bunch from his own works from his recently released CD! I think everyone really enjoyed themselves.
The Seniors' Tea is held every year in mid June. It is put on by the Beiseker Station Museum Society which operates our own Museum in the train station, which also houses the Village Office. For many years the Tea was held in the lower museum exhibit hall at the station, but the senior's center makes a far better venue. It's a perfect chance to see people you haven't seen maybe all winter and catch up on all the local happenings and gossip!
If you've never attened, make a mental note to come next year.
