The Disciples Women’s Fellowship is planning an Olde English Afternoon Tea Party and Shoppe on Saturday, April 18th at 2:00 P.M. as a church fund raiser. There will be a typical “Tea” menu served in the Fellowship Hall which we will decorate as a Tea Room. The Tea Shoppe will have tea-related items (new and very gently used) for sale. We’ll need the help of everyone and will be calling on you for areas in which you’d like to help or accepting monetary donations if you prefer. Go ahead and talk it up with all your friends and relatives to let them know we’re planning a special fun afternoon that day! “Reservations” will be $12.00 each. We only have 100 spaces, and we’re hoping they’ll sell out quickly, so let everyone know to reserve space early. Any questions can be directed to Ann Todd or Ann Harris. A big thank-you to all who have already donated and/or loaned things for the tea. Everyone please stop by the east wing classroom next to the choir room and see what has been brought to the church. If you have items to donate or loan, you can drop them off in that room. Just be sure to mark them either “For Sale” if you are donating them for sale in our tea shoppe, or “Not For Sale” and your name if you’re letting us borrow them for decorating or for serving but you want your items back. We especially need small sugar tongs and tiered trays/serving dishes for serving the food on and would appreciate your loaning them to us if you have any.
Tickets are by reservation only. Call and reserve your’s (or your group’s) now, Ann Todd or Ann Harris. Please contact Gayenell Gull if you have questions! Have a group of young ladies or “young at heart ladies” wanting to have a fun afternoon? Wearing your favorite hat is acceptable and optional!
Plans are coming along and the big day is shaping up beautifully. We are really in need of ladies of the church to help us serve, though, so if you’ll be in town on April 18, please let Ann Harris or Ann Todd know. Help us make this a huge success. It is going to be a fun event and people in are already excited about attending. Thank you in advance for your help, and please help sell those tickets!
