Spring Tea a hit
The Macedonia Community Action Spring Tea and Fashions on Saturday, May 18 was a great success.
Thanks to Glenda Shank, the Dress Barn in Summerville, and the models for a great fashion show. The models did a terrific job and were very professional, without very much practice.
There was about 150 in attendance among these were Sen. Larry Grooms, Rep. Eddy Southard with his wife Patsy, daughter-in-law and granddaughters, and Berkeley County Councilman Jack Schurlknight and his wife, Beth.
The Tea was held at the Oak Grove PH Church Life Worship Center. The building was beautifully decorated with accessories pertaining to fashions.
Thanks to all of the men who kept the tables supplied with ice water and hot water for tea, the young ladies that kept the tables supplied with food, and the workers in the kitchen. Also thanks to all the donors for door prizes, food and monetary donations.
Macedonia Middle School will see 120 eighth graders moving forward to high school next year. This is a big step forward in their life. Congratulations to all these students.
