The women of Salt Lake City, Utah, were invited to the first annual "Friendship Tea," on May 7 at the home of Beth Hart, and cohosted by Carol Foy and Debbie Pierce. Nineteen of 22 women were able to attend, all sporting festive hats and gloves. A vast spread of savory and sweet treats had been prepared, and though everyone came with an appetite, there was much left over!
Women were also invited to share their favorite from an assortment of poems, prose and other small quotes on the topics of friendship and tea.
According to one longtime member, Pauline Park, this is the first all-women's activity to be hosted in this area in 25 years. Each of the women expressed a desire to make it an annual event, and several offered to host it in coming years.
