OLD QUEENSTONIA TEA
The Old Girls’ Association of Queenstown Girls’ High School hosted a Ladies Morning Tea in St George’s Hall recently. The main speaker, Elizabeth Robinson-Campbell, came all the way from Cape Town and also entertained the school girls on the Friday during assembly. She wrote a book called ‘The Choice’, and spoke about her life experiences and what God had done in her life. She is also a renowned artist. Marlene Vlok spoke on table settings and gave tips on how to decorate when entertaining. Sam Breetzke, a rose grower in the Queenstown district, gave valuable information regarding the growing of roses in our area. At the end of the morning, two delicious Black Forest cakes were auctioned by Miss Carol Millington, to the delight of the ladies at the tea. The decor and flowers were beautiful and the eats absolutely delicious.
