Today I went to one of my very favorite events – the fundraiser tea at the Methodist Church in Arlington, Kansas. This is the third year I’ve been and it’s just wonderful. These five ladies who organize it do an amazing job.
They transform their church basement by bringing in dishes, furniture, pictures, and all manner of decorations. I’m always amazed by the work they do. Everything is beautiful.
These ladies also do a great job with food. It’s tasty and very pretty – just like tea food is supposed to be.
They had new tablecloths this year, and the settings were more streamlined. I have liked all the ones I’ve been to, including this one, it was just a little different.
The program this afternoon was about aprons. Interestingly enough, the lady giving the talk was Susie Haver. I know Susie from way back – she used to be involved with the Brown Grand Theatre in Concordia, Kansas – and I interviewed her when I was with the radio station.
Since then I’ve bumped into her at various times at various things. I guess we move in some of the same circles. She’s also a Kansas Explorer, so that’s another connection.
She had a number of aprons as examples of various sorts, but this was one of my favorites – one that the lady on it was wearing a little skirt that you could lift and see her pantaloons.
Teresa (yellow shirt), Susan (black) and Jan (beige) and I went today. Peggy was supposed to go but couldn’t at the last minute. I asked for a take away plate for her and took it over to her and Gary tonight. We chatted for awhile and it was an interesting talk.
