Rose Tea We went to the Rose Tea and a party broke out. we had all the right ingredients for this to happen, a great place outside at Jeanne's patio, good food, and lots of friends. We covered the serious business first them moved to roasting Past-President Deb Padgett, since she is retiring this year. We laughed a lot and presented her with a beautiful engraved clock. I am extremely grateful to Jeanne for opening her home to us and Sue Collins for all the invitations to the prospective members and the gift. With so much help, how could Rose Tea not be a success?
