This event has been offered each spring for many years by our United Methodist Women (UMW) and is eagerly anticipated by members of our church and our community. Relax and enjoy "the royal treatment" for two hours while our waiters and waitresses serve you tea and several courses of sweet and savory delights — chicken salad puffs, sausage rolls, three varieties of tea sandwiches, baked-from-scratch scones with strawberry jam & clotted cream, and a selection of small desserts — all prepared by our church's wonderful cooks and bakers!
It's hoped (not yet confirmed) that Cynthia Paris will again have a selection of beautiful scarves available for sale before and after the Tea, and be willing to demonstrate how to use them to enhance your wardrobe.
Tickets cost $18 each, which some attendees have called "a bargain" considering the quality and quantity of food served. We recommend not eating lunch beforehand! Feel free to ask your waiter for a take-away container if you would like to take some of your goodies home.
Our Tea is held in our Fellowship Hall, which is beautifully decorated for the event. There is just one seating, for up to 150 people. Different sizes and shapes of tables will accommodate 4, 6 or 8 people. Until April 1, a table discount of $1/ticket is available to anyone who buys tickets for an entire 6-person or 8-person table! (A table for 8 costs $136, an $8 discount. A table for 6 costs $102, a $6 discount.) Buy a table's worth of tickets and bring family and friends!
The proceeds from this event help to fund UMW programs and ministries. Please join us for another wonderful Tea!
