Presbyterian Village hosted a Ladies Spring Luncheon and Tea on April 16. The menu was homemade chicken salad on croissants with carrot sticks, fresh pepper slices and cheese slices along with a fruit kabob.
There were three flavors of tea: peach, raspberry and unsweetened tea.
"The tea party was a blast!" said Minnie Lou Allen.
Minnie Lou had four guests at the table, and they all chose to wear spring hats. It was a wonderful time. Janice Ramsey also invited a few of her friends to come. She moved here in February.
"I love it here. My friends cannot believe how big my apartment is and the luncheon was so much fun," said Janice when she was asked how she liked living at Presbyterian Village.
Susan Dillow, a guest of Janice Ramsey, said she comes out to the Village to visit her friends who live here often.
“This is fun and a great place to be. When I am ready for independent living this is where I want to live,” Susan said.
Clarice Russell lived out in the country before moving to Presbyterian Village. She invited her friends, and they were the lucky table because they won four out of six door prizes.
The centerpieces, which doubled as door prizes, were potted annual spring flowers that made the room smell of spring. Sandy Hemphill played the violin while the ladies enjoyed their lunch. The ladies enjoyed their tea with a healthy amount of laughter and friendship.
