Bonshaw Tea 150
July 23

Bonshaw Hall is 150 years old. The building was constructed as a Presbyterian Church, and opened in 1867. In 1925 it became a United Church of Canada. Since 2008 the building has been owned by the Bonshaw Hall Co-op, and used as a community hall and gathering place. The original Church construction ended with a debt—and to raise funds to pay that off, the members of the congregation organized the famous Bonshaw Tea, held July 18, 1867. People came from far and wide. A distinguished party from Charlottetown sailed up the West River, on the steamer Heather Belle—and got as far as the Bridge in Bonshaw. They had a brass band on board. Back in Bonshaw, a large crowd of people had assembled. Music was provided by the Queen Square Church Choir, the brass band, and a bagpiper. At the end of the day, the grand sum of 60 pounds was raised. And now—the Bonshaw Hall Co-op intends to commemorate that occasion with the Bonshaw Tea 150, incorporating many of the features of the original event. It takes place July 23 at 2 pm at Bonshaw Hall. After a program of music, including a fanfare on trumpet and choral music contemporaneous to the 1860s, sung by the choir Coro Dolce, there will be a period of reminiscence and story. At 3 pm, a piper will lead the “congregation” up to the Bonshaw Community Centre next door, where the Picnic itself will be celebrated, outside if the weather is fine, indoors if not. The fare will roughly replicate that of the original 1867 Picnic, including ginger beer. All are welcome.
