Mother’s Day Tea benefit
How would you like to enjoy a traditional English “High Tea” and, at the same time, help feed hungry people? The T.A.M.E. (That All May Eat) Ministry at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Daleville is sponsoring a gourmet Mother’s Day Tea on Saturday, May 7. Proceeds from sales support projects to help the food-insecure in the community and the world. You may either dine-in at the church, or place the order for take-out if preferred.
Each High Tea box will contain two savory sandwiches, a white chocolate cranberry scone with Devonshire cream, a chicken salad croissant, two desserts, and an assortment of teabags.
