The room was filled to capacity for the 2012 Harvest Tea held on October 25th at the Convent in Los Gatos, California. Tea was served by the fifth grade girls from Saint Mary's, who were charming and very attentive.
The Harvest Tea was preceeded by the Marie Rose Guild Boutique. The room was packed with interesting and useful gift items, greeting cards, jams, fudge, scones and an assortment of other baked goods, all made by the Guild members and our senior sisters. In addition, there was a special section this year of items from Scotland -- brand new woolen blankets, skirts, sweaters, hats and pins-- that had been generously donated for the sale.
All proceeds from the tea and boutique help to support our retired and infirmed senior sisters.
