The Queen of England has nothing on Glendale's Assistance League. The League created high tea in its Chapter House on April 17. Members and guests, all looking like very queenly, were encouraged to wear hats to tea. All that was missing were the white gloves and fascinators. Event Chairman Mary McVay royally conducted her Tea Committee to put on one of the League's most popular events of the year, the Queen's Jubilee Tea.
Other event chairmen were Mary Lo Follett, in charge of reservations; Anne Wilson, who as treasurer, handled the $20 admission fees; Sylvia Kowal crafted the place card calligraphy; Sally Benson made the 22 centerpieces of spring flowers and Margaret Hammond (chapeau and all) played traffic cop in the parking lot.
Tea sandwiches, fruit tarts and tea in delicate teapots with porcelain cups and saucers to match was served. Mary Margaret Smith brought her own tea set for her table. After tea, a fashion show of clothes from the League's Thrift Alley were modeled. And the price tags were strictly low class.
