On Saturday May 19th when the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex got married, the Southwest British American Club toasted their union with a Garden Party held at Sandoval Club House in Cape Coral. All the ladies who attended looked absolutely marvelous in their garden party dresses and fabulous hats. After initial introductions, opening address and welome for attending members and non memebers, the club joined together to toast the happy couple in the tradition 3 cheers manner. The finger food, Elder flower & Lemon cake, Royal Sponge cake, traditional savories and sandwiches went down a treat all with the help of Pimms, Prosecco sparkling wine and assorted beers.
As well as the excellent food, we held daft party games all with prizes, including pass the parcel, a Royal quiz that had been flown in by appointment and under royal seal that was attended by two Coldstream Guards, a raffle and a selection of music, all with a backdrop recorded video of the actual wedding played in the background
"This was a wonderful event and one that will not be easily forgotten. To all of the ladies on the Royal Wedding committee, and for everybody who made and brought food and beverages, on behalf of our Club I want to thank you for your tallents, enthusiasm and your wonderful sense of fun. I thank you you all for making it such a special day." Graeme Taylor VP

We are also going to ask club members to respond to all monthly events even if they can't go. as this will make event numbers planning alot easier.
