Winter Tea at the Cottage Off to a Great Start

Afternoon Tea at the Cottage
Pam Hainy was the featured speaker at Anne Hathaway Cottage at Shakespeare Gardens on Thursday, November 3.  She spoke about her recent trip to Australia to a crowd of 22 people. 
Pam described the countryside, the food, the welcoming people, and the unique animals of Australia.  An Australian football game, much different from the game played in the United States, was part of the trip.  Driving on the wrong side of the road with a variety of unusual road signs and markings made travel interesting as well.
Pam made ANZAC Biscuits for the tea because of their history in Australia.  ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army corps. They were cookies traditionally sent by wives to their soldiers during World War I because the ingredients were readily available and did not spoil on the naval ships.
Mary Jane Belz, accompanied by Pastor John Paulson on guitar,  led the group in singing "Waltzing Matilda", which is sometimes referred to as the national anthem of Australia.
SGS board members served treats and tea.  The sweets served were the ANZAC biscuits, Lamingtons, and traditional scones with clotted cream and jam. Lamingtons are unique birthday, tea, or special occasion sponge cake squares dipped in chocolate and rolled in desiccated coconut
The next Winter Afternoon Tea is December 15 with a Christmas play presented by Shakespeare Garden Society board members.  Proceeds from donations for the event  go to the preservation and repairs of Anne Hathaway Cottage and the gardens.
For reservations or more information, call Mary Jane Belz at 605-539 -1169.
