Fascinators and fancy hats, friendship, fun, and food presided at the first annual Ladies’ Afternoon Tea. The event was organized by the Fellowship Committee and spearheaded by Connie Zaenglein and Keidra Koenig. The inaugural event took place on Saturday, May 20, 2023. Ladies from both services joined together at a most elegant English Tea Party.
They discovered tables adorned with vintage tea sets, two types of tea, and the best part of tea – fancy sandwiches and treats. After the sandwiches, the ladies enjoyed a compote filled with assorted spreads, as well as scones and other mini desserts. The conversation was plentiful throughout the meal. Tea time wrapped up on a high note; a raffle for six vintage teacups donated by John Schroeder.
This springtime event was so successful, we’re looking forward to tea time every year! What a fitting finale to the monthly ladies’ luncheons that take place at various area restaurants beginning in September. Click here to view photos from the 2023 event.
