ROSBURG - The Friendship Circle of Grays River United Methodist Church will hold its second annual Spring Tea on Sunday, May 23, at the Rosburg Community Hall, located on Altoona Road near State Route 4 in Rosburg. The public is invited. A suggested donation of $4 includes the program and the luncheon.
The theme is "Down Memory Lane." Doors will open at noon, and the program begins at 12:30 p.m. Barbara Bate will be the accompanist. A light luncheon and a plant sale will follow the program. Also featured is the raffle of a ladies designer hat, with winner having a choice of three hats. Joan Harvey Chester, of Cathlamet, offered the hats as a way to raise additional money for this year's project. The hats will be on display at three different banks: The Bank of the Pacific, Naselle Branch, The Bank of the Pacific, Cathlamet Branch, and the Bank of America in Cathlamet. Raffle tickets may be purchased at the banks. The winner does not need to be present at the drawing.
Included in the collection of vintage clothing to be shown or modeled are wedding gowns from 1895 and 1930, through the 1960s.
Funds raised by the tea will be designated for the new stained glass windows at the Grays River United Methodist Church. A color rendering of the windows, designed by local resident and retired grade school principal, Linda Nelson, will be on display at the event. Installation of the new windows is scheduled for this summer. For more information, call 484-7749, or Cheryl Dutcher at (360) 465-2740.
