Event description

Description

The summer solstice is considered to be the longest day of the year because it's when we get the most daylight. The midsummer date is set based on the planet’s rotational axis. It’s decided based on the sun’s tilt towards the sun, which hits its maximum at 23° 26′ and falls between June 20 and June 22 in the northern hemisphere. This year, the summer solstice will take place on June 21 and we are celebrating the event on the 22nd on the Faculty Club Patio. The evening will begin with passed appetizers at 6:30 pm, then sit for dinner at 7:00. A fine selection of wines will be offered starting with a lovely Rose from McPherson Wines in Victoria, plus new menu items for you to choose.
