DAR Commemorative Mother's Day Tea

 On Sunday afternoon, May 4, I attended a DAR Tea
hosted by the Rockcastle County Chapter, NSDAR,
in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Mother's Day
at a church in Mt.Vernon, KY.
Twenty-two tables were set for six guests each.  
Seating began at 1:00 p.m.
The program began at 1:30 p.m.  
When we arrived the three tiered servers were on the tables.  
Sandwiches and savories, veggies and dip, mini desserts, and fresh fruit were served.  

 Our table was reserved for Chapter Regents from the area. 

 The program included music by local entertainers, a history of Mother's Day, 
recognition of the oldest DAR member mother the oldest mother in Rockcastle County,
an outstanding Rockcastle County mother, and a memorial candlelight ceremony 
in memory of deceased mothers and in honor of living mothers of the guests attending.
A pie and cake live auction and a silent auction of donated items was held.  
 It was a beautiful day to drive south to Mt.Vernon. 
I visited with several Rockcastle County friends attending. 
A variety of iced teas were served. 
The food was prepared and served by a caterer and DAR members.

If you keep posting pictures of all these tiered tea trays brimming with delicious foods - I may have to move to Kentucky! What a lovely tea. So many wonderful recognitions and such a lovely tea.
