QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY PARTY COCKTAILS

QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY PARTY COCKTAILS
Ticino and Grisons Region

This year the Queens Birthday Party Cocktails were held at our fast becoming venue of choice – The Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola on 6th June where we were treated to some very tasty nibbles in the delightful Sala del Camino as our idea of holding the party in the grounds as originally planned were thwarted by the usual Spring downpour!

Glasses were raised to Her Majesty the Queen the Loyal Toast being given by Mrs Mary Palmesino and after a short but pertinent speech by the Canon Alistair Macdonald-Radcliff.    

We were very pleased too, to welcome our Chairwoman Angie Meier and Honorary Treasurer Peter Payne along with other BRA members from ‘north of the alps’ making their way down to Lugano and along with local members a very jolly evening ensued – it was also very nice to see everyone after so long in lockdown!
