    There have been several requests for help which has all but depleted our reserves. When a person comes in for assistance, an application is sent to all the Deacons to consider.

Separate tea party for children offered.   High tea is an English tradition with a variety of both sweet and savory food items, and is considered a mid-day “meal” to most Brits. The custom was started by an English noble woman who found she suffered from a “sinking” feeling around 4 pm.  Since supper was not eaten until 8 PM, she started the tradition of serving cakes and other items to get her through until supper.
