St. David’s Coronation event May 7 was a royally good Big Lunch! It brought together more than 100 parishioners, friends and neighbours who joined thousands of others around the world in celebrating the new reign of King Charles III and his Consort Queen Camilla.
Invited guests, Mr. Ian Paton (MLA for Delta South) and Mr. Dylan Kruger, (City of Delta Councillor) had an opportunity to meet and greet members of the community, including the new-to-Canada families from the Ukraine. The youngest among them were a joy to behold. With faces painted, food to their liking, and take-home balloons, their first Big Lunch was clearly a happy day.
Barbecue, salads, desserts, and cutting of a celebratory Coronation cake (by long-time parishioner Peggy de Lange) preceded a program that included piping, The Royal Tribute by Rev. Simbarashe Basvi, Salutations, and singalong ballads of the British Isles.
