2012-2013 The Guild Silver Tea

The Lord blessed us with the most beautiful weather on Thursday, April 11, as Guild members and their guests gathered to honor Mary Ann Belin and Faye Dunwoody and to celebrate the 22nd annual Silver Tea.  Spring flowers were abundant and the ladies enjoyed visiting in the beautiful setting of the River Oaks home of Vicki and Ken Douglas.  More than 200 guests arrived to celebrate the traditional afternoon tea.   Thanks to the generosity of many members and friends, more than $75,000 was raised to fund scholarships for graduate education and theology majors at HBU.  Co-Chairs Angie Angel, Ann Beeson and Carolyn Williams worked tirelessly on this special project, along with their many committee members and committee chairs, including Nancy Shomette and the Underwriting Committee. We extend a very special thank you to our Underwriters, as well, for the contributions to our scholarship fund.   Harpist, and HBU graduate, Deborah O’Donnell, made the afternoon complete with her beautiful music selections, and the delicious delicacies were catered by Silver Stone Events.  This was, indeed, a glorious day!  "This is the day the Lord hath made ... let us rejoice and be glad!"
