We had a wonderful afternoon with great food and many ladies and gentlemen who attended the Tea and hat show. Ill. Sir Allan Hadley showed up in his morning suit with top hat to add to the event. We were entertained with a summary of 100 years of hats to see how ladies fashion has changed over the century. Fancy sandwiches and scones with jam and clotted cream and delightful dainties helped make the afternoon. We had silent auction prizes and a 50/50 that made the select few happy. PP Kathy had a large display of jewelry that she had made for the ladies to purchase. Thank you to President Lynne, PP June, PP Joy and their committees who did a wonderful job of this event under trying circumstances of the Coronavirus looming. Here are some photos of the afternoon.
