Royal tea celebrates 100 years

The Keremeos Royal Purple celebrated the 100th birthday of Royal Purple in Canada by holding a tea.

Members of the Keremeos Royal Purple gathered recently to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the society in Canada.

 

On Saturday September 13 the Keremeos Royal Purple celebrated the 100th birthday of Royal Purple in Canada by holding a tea.

Members of the public were invited to attend and dessert as well as coffee, tea and juice was served.

The seniors choir was invited to entertain and they turned out a great performance, reminding those present  of all the old favorite tunes that were thought to be long  forgotten.

The tea was also attended by Mayor Bauer and wife Eileen.

Many members of the community attended as well as a contingent of Royal Purple members from Osoyoos.

The Royal Purple has been active in Keremeos since the mid 1940s and remains one of the few groups left in town who cater to local functions.

 

They meet on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at the Elks Hall on Veterans Avenue in Keremeos, and welcome anyone to join them for a meeting to learn more about them.
