Tideview Terrace hosted its first Scallop Days Princess Tea at the new location on Pleasant St. in Conway Thursday afternoon, Aug. 9 with Scallop Queen 2011 Alyssa Oliver in attendance along with five princesses vying for the title of Scallop Queen 2012.
Princesses Faith Turner-Anderson, Victoria Amero, Jocelyn Theriault, Madisen Goodwin and Sarah Tibbetts served tea to and mingled with the residents before introducing themselves and answering impromptu questions.
Judges for the princesses also attended the tea evaluating the girls during the afternoon event.
Christine Hutchins of Tideview said the residents love the annual teas.
“This is a special occasion for the residents, a highlight and they look forward to meeting the young ladies as well as having the opportunity to ask the impromptu questions,” said Hutchins.
Tideview resident Roberta Potter was delighted to find out that one of the Scallop Days princesses, Madisen Goodwin, was a neighbour when she lived in Deep Brook.
“Madisen always came over to visit when she lived next door to me, she was a sweet heart and I am so happy to see her here today,” said Potter.
Not all residents were able to attend the tea so the Scallop Queen and princesses took time prior to the event to visit in each of the houses.
