40th annual Mayor’s Tea on June 5

It is a landmark year for the Mayor’s Tea and people with historic ties to the event, as well as individuals who just enjoy a great gathering, won’t want to miss out.

“This will be our 40th annual tea, which is pretty significant,” Mayor Heidi Lorenz said. “To think we have been coming together as a community like this for such a long time is truly special.”

Set for Wednesday, June 5, starting at 1 p.m., the tea takes place at the historic Gravenhurst Opera House.

“It’s such a beautiful setting and as always we have a fun lineup in store for the afternoon,” Mayor Lorenz said.

Muskoka-based Sonny Boy Mick, a solo act featuring award-winning singer and songwriter Stephen McPhail, will provide musical entertainment from the opera house stage. 

The theme for the performance is a retro drive-in party with hits of the 1950s and 1960s.

During the afternoon, Mayor Lorenz will announce Gravenhurst’s 2024 Ontario Senior of the Year.

Annually, local municipalities nominate an individual who has enriched the social, cultural, or civic life of a community.

Brenda Gabitous was the 2023 recipient.

There is no cost to attend the tea, however, the town does ask that people reserve a spot at the event in advance.
