[March 27, 2014]  Spring has officially arrived on the calendar, and ticket sales are underway for the 11th annual Spring for Tea sponsored by the Harvest of Talents for World Hunger. Marcia Bidwell, who is chairing the event, announced that a limited number of tickets remain for the April 26 tea.

Spring for Tea will be in the Lincoln Christian Church Fellowship Center. Doors to the event open at 10:45 a.m. and tea will be served at 11:30 a.m.

The tea features a number of beautiful tables, each uniquely appointed with lovely china, silver and crystal and offering a wide variety of colorful themes and décor. Women from the community will serve as table hostesses, both decorating the tables and graciously serving the guests at their table.

Men in black will again be on hand to greet the tea guests and escort them to their appointed tables. Guests will be invited to participate in a promenade of the beautifully decorated tables as they await the serving of tea.

A variety of traditional and tasty tea foods will be served, ranging from dainty sandwiches to tea cakes, fruit and other delicacies, accompanied by the traditional Spring for Tea blend of tea.

A string quartet will provide ambiance for the occasion.

Throughout the serving of tea, a number of door prizes provided by local businesses and individuals will be presented to those in attendance.

Following the serving of tea and a time of conversation, a program will be presented.

Bidwell invites women in the community to participate in this first fundraising event of the Harvest for Talents season.

"After a long and very cold winter, Spring for Tea will truly be like a breath of fresh air, offering the colors of a bright new season," she commented. "We hope to provide a lovely setting for our guests to welcome the coming of spring as they share a time of special foods and fellowship."

Bidwell also expressed her appreciation to all of the local businesses and individuals who are providing door prizes for the occasion.

Spring for Tea is the premiere spring event of Harvest of Talents and is the first 2014 event of the local hunger ministry. The Harvest of Talents for World Hunger, now in its 31st year, is a unique ministry of the Lincoln Christian Church. Partnering with International Disaster Emergency Service, the Lincoln church has raised $1,819,213.38 though the 30th Harvest of Talents, every penny of which has gone to feeding programs, orphanages and missions worldwide, providing both physical and spiritual food to those in need. A number of events across the United States have been birthed by the founding Harvest of Talents in Lincoln and together have raised over $2 million to feed the hungry.

The 31st annual Harvest of Talents for World Hunger will be on the fourth Saturday in October in the Lincoln Christian Church Fellowship Center. Anyone desiring information about the Harvest of Talents ministry may call the church office at 217-732-7618.
