The media hype is abounding about the British royal wedding on April 29th and to help celebrate the wedding and raise some money for the Swallowtail restorations we are having a Royal Wedding Tea on April 30 at the Covert Hall in North Head, Grand Manan from 2-4 pm.
Anyone wearing a fancy hat will be entered into a draw for dinner for two at the Inn at Whale Cove Cottages. The tea is $10 and you can request a tax receipt for $5.
