OUR SPECIAL "POTLUCK" TEA TIME
We raise extra funds this time each year by having our patrons provide the tea time. It has never failed to be filled with the most delicious foods and delightful treats brought by our attendees.
Tea & scones are provided by the Victorian Tea & Dance Society.

WHAT TO BRING:
• a family-size dish (savory, sweet, veggie, etc.)
• a note listing any allergy alert ingredients
(such as dairy, nuts, gluten, soy, etc.)
• please bring already on a serving plate with serving utensil
(Ready to go, to be served "as is", will help us very much.)

Every year I am amazed & honored at the wonderful spread that gets presented as our guests take the reins at our Potluck Tea Lunch. Thank you all!

PLEASE NOTE:
You are not required to bring a dish to attend
however it is much appreciated by all if you do!
