This church is the same venue we have used for the past several years and provides plenty of space for our luncheon. Bring a covered dish to share.
Following lunch, Todd Frey will demonstrate a typical Japanese Tea Ceremony. We will have a chance to taste the macha tea that is used for such ceremonies. (Don't worry, we will remain seated - we do not need to kneel on the floor).
Please bring your white elephant items for the silent auction. (Note ---we are not accepting books this year - please donate them to your local library or thrift store).
