Ladies enjoy a Quirky Afternoon Tea

valerie battle k author | oakland houseOn September 28th the Ladies of Oakland hosted a Uniquely Quirky Afternoon Tea. Guest speaker Valerie Battle Kienzle, author of What’s With St. Louis? The Quirks, Personality and Charm of the Gateway City, delighted attendees with a host of anecdotes and trivia about our beloved hometown.

To go along with the theme, guests were treated to delicious refreshments with St. Louis roots including Gus’ pretzels, thin crust pizza, toasted ravioli and gooey butter cake. Kienzle gave a brief history of each St. Louis food as it was served.

Five members joined AHS at the tea, and the sold-out event realized an overall profit of $1,945.00. Many thanks to Tea Committee members Pam Danklef (Chair), Rosie Miller, Dot Huebener, Nancy Herndon-Ulrich, Jeri Akiki, Sheila Savka, and Joyce Rich for their dedication and hard work, and to Marilyn Hammon, Jean McDaniel, Barbara Malta and Nancy Herndon-Ulrich for acting as servers.

 A Uniquely Quirky time was had by all!
