We repeated the Club Creed and the Pledge of Allegiance. The tables were decorated with beautiful tea pots, jewelry boxex, bracelets, necklaces, gloves, dainty purses. Everything a lady enjoys.

Linda Schiele brough bouquets of beautifl Iris from her garden and put on each table. China cups and saucers, linen napkins were used. Brenda made little teapots with tea bags inside from each member. Many types of tea bages were on the tables. We picked our choice and hot water was served to make our own tea.
