A Membership Tea

This afternoon tea was held at Lady J’s house.  The purpose of this tea was to recruit and welcome new members to a local women’s philanthropy group.  Our very own members put together all the table settings and made the food.  There were 50 women in attendance and the event took 3 months to plan.
