Saturday morning, the large auditorium at Lincoln Christian Church was transformed into one of the most beautiful places one would ever imagine. The occasion was the 10th annual Spring for Tea, a day when ladies of Logan County put on their best and sit down to tea at tables that are so beautifully decorated, it takes your breath away.

The event included tea, of course, and a wide variety of dainty foods designed for such an occasion. Guests were served by several of the ladies of the church and the "men in black," a group of fellows who donned their handsome black suits and spent the noontime hour serving the ladies.

According to Carolyn Neal, Lincoln Christian Church is celebrating their 30th year of Harvest of Talents. The yearlong fundraising effort begins with the ladies' tea, which is in its 10th year. The next large event is expected to be the Princess Tea for little girls. All of these activities lead up to the highlight of the year, the October Harvest of Talents for World Hunger Day at the church. That daylong event offers a wide variety of activities from early morning to late evening.

In its first 29 years, the Harvest of Talents fundraisers have brought in a total of $1,718,145.23. All the proceeds from the events go directly to feeding programs, orphanages and missions throughout the world. The local group works directly with International Disaster Emergency Service.

Here is just a small sampling of all that was part of this year's event. Enjoy the photos, and if it moves you to attend next year, you will most certainly be welcome.
