“Lavender Tea” a huge success
On September 27th the Ladies of Oakland hosted their annual Afternoon Tea with a luscious lavender theme. Guest speaker Betsy Burnett-Belanger, Director of St. Louis Spirit Search, regaled attendees with fascinating details of the life of Lillian Lemp, the “Lavender Lady” of the Lemp Brewery family. Decked out in lovely period dress, new caretaker Jacqueline Brown welcomed guests on the steps of Oakland. Delicious refreshments were lovingly created by members of the Tea Committee, and tables were adorned with flowers and delicate decorations in shades of purple, lavender and violet.
Eleven members joined AHS at the tea, and the sold-out event realized an overall profit of $1,905.00. Much of the food, as well as table gift and decorating supplies, were donated by
committee members. In addition, the profit figure includes special contributions to the Ladies of Oakland made by Kathleen Komorech and Pat Arrendell. Thanks to all for their generosity. This special event would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of many people. Thank you to Tea Committee members Pam Danklef (Chair), Rosie Miller, Nancy Herndon, Cyndie Ahrens, Dot Huebener, Jeri Akiki, Barb Cook and Sheila Savka, as well as to Servers Marilyn Hammon, Jean McDaniel, Dot Huebener and Mary Jane
Autry, and to Car Parkers Charlie Brown and Nancy Harmon.
