Lakewood Ladies Association members turned quite a few heads during the hot, hot days of late August when they arrived at the club all dressed up – even wearing hats.

The special occasion – planned by Jan Smith — was an Afternoon Tea, which began with champagne and featured different teas, plus a variety of sweets, scones and dainty sandwiches. Veddy British.

Even had a harpist, Meghan Caulkett, who earned her master’s at Rice University and played background music for the crowd. Besides really enjoying themselves, all left with a special memento of the occasion — beautiful tea cup and saucer – and memories of a special afternoon.
