Kitchener City Hall was the scene of a Garden Party to celebrate the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth on the afternoon of August 13th. Unexpected rain showers forced about 300 or more guests from Roos Island in Victoria Park in Kitchener to the Rotunda of City Hall. Rain did not dampen the enthusiasm and delight to celebrate this milestone in the life of Her Majesty and to honor her position as our constitutional Head of State. Over the years Her Majesty has given our Nation her gifts of service, dedication, loyalty, and love. In recognition of her life and service the Garden Party began with the Royal Fanfare and the singing of the Royal Anthem, God Save the Queen.

Kitchener Musical Society Band plays a variety of music for the guests.

Guests were treated to scones and jam, lemon tarts, squares, tea, ice tea and lemonade as the Kitchener Musical Society Band played light classics, show tunes and popular music. Many guest wore their garden party best with flowered hats, gloves, long dresses, tuxedos and military dress. As guests mingled with their refreshments they shared their memories of such historic events as royal visits, royal weddings, trooping the colours and being part of the crowds attending other historic state events.

Scones with jam and other various foods are available for the guests.

As the afternoon unfolded guests were encouraged to purchase a take home china tea cups, to accept a bag of scones, tarts and squares and for three lucky guests to accept the baskets of pink roses, star lilies and white gladiolas. Concluding remarks involved special thanks and rousing applause for the Kitchener Musical Society Band and all the volunteers.

This delightful, successful Garden Party to celebrate and honour Her Majesty the Queen concluded with the singing of the National Anthem, O Canada and many wonderful memories.
