Murder Mystery Teas

By request

Come and enjoy an afternoon of food, fun and intrigue, with your group of friends by participating in one of our Murder Mystery Teas. All it takes is a group of eight people who are willing to take on an easy role as one of the characters and as many others who would like to attend. A luncheon of fancy sandwiches, scones with Devon Cream and other goodies, is served on three tiered platters along with tea in bone china cups. Of course, there will be a prize offered for some lucky person.

For more information, please contact Carol Hansen at 250 752 8573 ext 224 or by e-mail to carol.milnergardens@shaw.ca
