Sunday Jan and I went to tea in St. John, Kansas. I’ve been to this tea a few times before. They tell me this may be the last year because they’re having trouble getting people to volunteer to make it happen. Things like this that depend on a large volunteer base to not only create the event, but cook the food, are suffering. I think it’s all part of us forgetting how to cook.
I’m glad I got to go. It was a Christmas theme this year and we were at a table with a feather tree from Germany, which was nice.
There were carolers, including the lady who seems to be one of the main organizers. She’s in the feathered hat in this photo.
The food was a little short on savories, as usual. But, it was beautifully displayed. I cannot imagine making all those gingerbread boys!
There were also displays of nativity scenes and hat pins.
I love going to tea, particularly these kind of community events. I’m always on the lookout for others around the state but they seem to be few and far between.
