Parties
Greenwich, CT

The English Speaking Union celebrated The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and her 86th birthday with a Garden Party at the home of Natalie and Malcolm Pray.  The British Deputy Consul-General, Nicholas Astbury, was the guest of honour and proposed a toast to Queen Elizabeth ll.

Two high school teachers who were awarded ESU scholarships to study in England this summer were introduced:  Mary Fernand of Bethel High School and Stephanie Ryan of Greenwich High School.  Greenwich Academy student, Lauren Eames, performed a monologue from Timon of Athens, for which she was awarded Honourable Mention in the ESU Shakespeare Competition.

Hats were de rigueur - fascinators in a wide variety with flowers and feathers, veils, classic wide brims and men in Panamas.  Champagne, strawberries and tea sandwiches were served under a tent.
