May Queen and court crowned at Fort tea

Groups fundraise to cover the costs of annual May Day festivities.

Tea time for the May Day Royal Party is April 24 in Fort Langley.

Leading up to the annual May Day celebrations will be the choosing of the Royal Party (the May Queen and court) at the tea party.

Co-chair Midori McMillan noted that the tea typically sells out in advance and is a fundraiser for the May Day activities around Fort Langley. This year the celebration and parade are May 23.

The tea is inside the Fort Langley Community Hall and is on the same day as the Langley Area Mostly British Motoring Club’s St. George’s Day Car Show, taking place on Glover Road outside the community hall.

There’s room for about 115 people at the tea.

Doors open at 12:45 p.m., and the tea runs until 3 p.m. with finger sandwiches, scones, assorted pastries, fruit and tea. There are gluten free options.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 child (ages seven to 12 years).

Contact co-chair Rachel McIntosh at 604-866-5715 or McMillan at 604-723-1570 or info@midorimcmillan.com.

The Fort Langley Lions organize the May Day Parade and Celebration and to help cover costs are hosting a beer and burger fundraiser April 22 starting at 6 p.m. at the clubhouse, 23022 88th Ave.

To get $15 tickets, contact Wendy at 604-888-4051.
