High Tea for High Waters

“High Tea for High Waters” a special experience hosted by the women of Lanesboro United Methodist Church will be held on Sunday May 12, at 3pm. The event features fine china, creative table presentations, and a wide variety of teas, European influenced desserts and savory sandwiches. Hanna Elshoff will offer her speech “Going Home.” "I want to inspire people to appreciate this country," said Chatfield speaker Elshoff - a native of northern Germany who came to the United States in 1961.

Why hold an event on Mother’s Day? Lots of people are looking for something special to do with mom, grandma or great Nana. The church is handicapped accessible. “Besides,” laughs Pastor Amanda Larsen, “with this spring it could be snowing on Mother's Day! We can’t count on being able to spend the day gardening.” And what about men? “While we anticipate this will be a fun event for mothers and daughters to attend, men are of course also welcome” invites Cheryl Lamon.

Part of the proceeds from the tea will be for flood relief. The Lanesboro community will send a team to Duluth this June for post flood cleanup. “We will be working through Lutheran Disaster Services” says Steve McCallson, trip leader. “They said there’s still a lot of work to do.” The church will also be preparing flood clean-up buckets bound for a warehouse waiting for immediate shipping to disaster sites.

Reservations are required. Tickets ($12) can be purchased at the Lanesboro Local or by calling the church at 507-467-2646.
