CHESTERVILLE — The Chesterville & District Historical Society pulled in a good turnout for its ‘Victoria Day’ tea yesterday, including (from left in top photo) Bonnie Wright, Candy Rutley and Rosemary Rutley.

The trio visited the event in historic Victorian dress to raise awareness about this summer’s 150th anniversary Stormont County Fair in Newington, which began during Queen Victoria’s reign.

Approximately 30 people attended the tea at the 14 Victoria Street Chesterville Heritage Centre.
