Tea Party Date Change

The Donor Recognition Tea Party date has changed!  Unfortunately, Spinnakers' was not available for September 6th due to a scheduling conflict we were not aware of until after the Invitations were mailed.  Fortunately, we have been able to re-schedule for September 13th!  

As a way of saying thank you to our donors, we have invited many of you to join us at Spinnakers' Brew Pub on Saturday, September 13th at 3:00pm for tea and a nature walk at the Matson Conservation Area.  Please RSVP to the HAT office - 250 995-2428.
