[September 12, 2013]  Something new is coming to the 30th Harvest of Talents for World Hunger. The committee for Spring for Tea, a well-known Harvest of Talents spring event, is planning a new offering at the 30th Harvest on Oct. 26.

Harvest guests looking for a brief respite from shopping or a few minutes to sit and chat with a friend or renew old acquaintances will be afforded that opportunity.

Georgia Vinson, who chairs the new Harvest area, aptly named Hospitali-tea, points out that while the mini-tea will not offer all of the elegance of the Spring Tea, it will provide tasty homemade foods accompanied by a Harvest blend of tea, chosen for the occasion.

A variety of handmade tea-related items will also be available for sale in the tea room.

Advance tickets for the tea will be offered for four seatings: 10-10:30 a.m., 10:45-11:15 a.m., 11:30-noon and 12:15-12:45 p.m. Tea tickets are only $5 each and may be obtained at the office of Lincoln Christian Church. Purchasers may choose their seating time when they purchase the tickets.

Vinson stresses the importance of timeliness in arriving at the mini-tea, due to the number of seatings available. She also noted that only a limited number of tickets will be available for this Harvest event.

The mini-tea is being offered in addition to the regular breakfast and luncheon menus and is intended to provide an occasion and location to enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation, accompanied by light refreshments and a cup of hot, fragrant Harvest tea.

Those having questions may contact Georgia Vinson at 732-9069 or Marcia Bidwell at 732-7772.
