Car Show at Episcopal Church Tea
On Saturday, March 7, we showed our cars at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepard in Venice, Florida. The church was holding its Annual Benefit “English Afternoon Tea” and invited us to add to the event with a display of British Cars. Most of the group caravanned over secondary roads from Sarasota to Venice. We ended up with fifteen cars parked in a great spot under the shady oaks in front of the church. The sittings for the Tea were sold out resulting in a lot of interest from the participants coming and going. Following the arrival of the last sitting, we loaded up and took a 20-minute drive to the Myakka River Oyster Bar, located at the southern limit of Venice. This restaurant started out as a fish camp in the early 1950’s and has been a restaurant for the last 25 years. There were 18 of us for the early dinner.
This turned out to be our last club event before “safe at home” and social distancing guidelines were announced for Florida due to the Coronavirus.
