Following a lovely luncheon provided by members of the center, member Rae Robertson, dressed in a beautiful gown and hat in the style worn by fashionable ladies of the 1800′s, gave a talk on the language and use of the fan during that period of history. We were all amazed at the “secret” messages that the tap of a fan or the angle that the fan was being held, conveyed at social gatherings back then. Maryann Tudor read a story about tea cups and Linda Stratten shared a reading about “Grandmother’s Hands”. Several games were played and many prizes given out to the winners. Evelyn Emery was awarded a gift for being the oldest lady in attendance and Kim Springer won a gift for being the youngest. Pat Oldershaw was the winner of the door prize, a lovely tea pot. Everyone present agreed that this was an outstanding event, and we will look forward to our next ladies tea party in the Fall. Many thanks to all of our hard working members who made this tea party such a great success!
