The Delburne CommuniTEA Infusion gives a reason for community members to come together, get to know each other better and strengthen our community connections.

In our fast-paced society, it is difficult to find the time to be connected with our community.

Carol Kihn, director of Delburne Family Community Support Services (FCSS) created this event in 2017 with the intention of strengthening relationships between neighbours.

On Sunday, Aug. 18, over 70 community members came together to drink tea and connect with other community members.

This event was held on the grounds of the Anthony Henday Museum in Delburne.

Tables were beautifully decorated and tea served in fancy cups to create a pleasing atmosphere for participants.

Those in attendance were surveyed with 100 per cent expressing the feeling that this event helps to build a stronger community.

They also felt that FCSS achieved the desired outcome for community connection and better relationship building.

This event was a tremendous success due to the many volunteers that eagerly came forward to assist along with the many Village and County of Red Deer residents who attended the event.

Delburne CommuniTEA will continue to be an annual event that is held on a Sunday afternoon in mid-August.
