The second annual Garden Winter Solstice Tea Party was held on Saturday, December 20 in the garden.

A group of approximately twenty-five hearty souls gathered for the celebration. Many pounds of canned goods were received on behalf of City Harvest through the event's Yes We Can Can drive as well as $93.61 for the garden cats via the Spare Change for Cats initiative.

Many thanks to all those who helped brighten the shortest day of the year.
