After holding our entrance fee steady for as long as we could (4 years)
the rising costs of hall rentals and tea time treats have finally brought
about an increase. Starting in October our Tea Socials will now be $20
which includes live music, dancing, dance instruction and tea time.

Though walk-ins are welcome, it is important to plan properly to have abundance for all. When you reply YES we do purchase and prepare food for YOU. Kindly respond by Thursday afternoon prior to our Social of your R.S.V.P. if possible.
Though paper plates are available, we encourage guests to bring their own settings for tea time. It adds an elegant touch and helps reduce paper waste and clean-up time. (Quicker clean-up allows our Tea Hostesses time to dance after tea!)*
