Jointly-hosted tea at museum

Strawberry Social 2 p.m. June 15th at museum grounds

Submitted by Columbia Valley Food and Farm/Windermere District Historical Society

Columbia Valley Food and Farm, a newly-formed non-profit local food organization that combines the former food organizations, is pleased to partner with the Windermere District Historical Society on Saturday, June 15th for the annual tea on the museum grounds.

Over the past 13 years, you may have enjoyed events and benefitted from the hard work of the team at Slow Food Columbia Valley to support our local producers and culinary traditions. We will continue the work to help build a better food system in the Columbia Valley. As always, we believe in acting locally, while thinking globally.

Stay tuned for upcoming events and projects such as The Columbia Food and Farm Guide, and come out to the Museum for a delicious Strawberry Social.

We’ll be serving B.C. strawberries, sponge cake and sweet cream. The Social will be part of of the Society’s Summer Opening Tea.

The summer theme at the museum is “Capturing History Through the Camera Lens,” with a display of many devices which made use of photographic film.

There is an Edison Projecting Kinetoscope (1897-1900), a finely made 4by5 inch folding field camera, a microfilm camera and reader and a number of cameras and projectors for both still and moving photos.

There will be accordion music by Franz Grasegger. Hope to see you at the Museum, 2 p.m., Saturday, June 15th.
