Club marks Conanicut Island purchase from Narragansetts
The Quononoquott Garden Club will commemorate the 350th Anniversary of the purchase of Conanicut Island from the Narragansett Indians with "Tea and Delicacies," at the community center at East Ferry on August 13, from 2 to 4 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $3.50 at Baker's Pharmacy and the Secret Garden. There are only 100 available, so plan to get them early.
Club member Sharon Hay met with her committee for the past several months planning the event, which also includes a program by former Rhode Island Federation of Garden Clubs' president and well-known floral designer, Candace Morgenstern. Her exquisite floral creations will be auctioned off after the event.
Garden club president, Gloria Westlake, and her members will bake and then serve the delicacies at the tea and promise a lovely two hours at a nominal cost. Iced tea and lemonade will be served, but for those traditionalists, hot tea with lemon or cream will be poured from china teapots. Call Gloria at 789-1685 or haythere93@ hotmail.com for information or reservations.
