Hats on, pinkies up & sip! Thank you to our volunteers who made our Sisters feel so loved and appreciated during our Second Annual Tea at the Motherhouse in Amityville!
It all began when S. Kathleen Lindsey raved about a high tea she attended Out East during the summer. When she told the volunteers, they said, "We can do that here!" For months, they rummaged through garage and yard sales purchasing boxes of china tea cups, plates and tea pots. The volunteers included: Sheila Brengel, Rosemary Arena, Jenny Amendola, Ann Casey, Lucille Forelli, Dorothy Kerkovich, Diane Sheehan, Marie Cuozzo and Linda Rosattie. Thank you!
In the photos are: S. Carmen Georgina Olivera, S. Josefita Rodriguez, S. Grace Regina Wingenfeld.
