Women Around Noon get Entertained!
The Prince Edward County group of active and retired business women, Women Around Noon, were treated to a wonderful day of architectural tours and spectacular food yesterday. The 55 women were given a tour of Cressy House by architect Francis Lapointe. The house tour was followed by a wine and cheese tasting and 4 cheese lasagna lunch, prepared by Chef & Sommelier Andrew Laliberte, and held under the newly finished (re)source pavilion. This was followed by a goat cheese ice cream dessert and concluded with a green building tour of the Fifth Town Cheese Factory. The (re)source pavilion fulfilled its role perfectly, providing a cool shaded space for the event.
