Members’ Tea

Club members enjoyed gathering at historic Weaver House in Pine Bend County Park for the annual Members’ Tea luncheon.  This year’s honorees were all of the committe chairpersons who help to keep the club vibrant and active.  Special recognition was given to Pat Bazany for her leadership in maintaining the community herb garden in Grand Haven for the last ten years.  Prizes were given for the best hats, and winners were Roger Mckay for best contemporary hat, Ginny Ryan for most flamboyant hat and  Jackie Wilson for best vintage hat.  It was a beautiful day, the luncheon was delicious, and a lovely time was had by all.  See the photo gallery for more pictures of the fun!
