– Press release

Don’t miss this year’s tea given by the Altrusa International of the Eastern Sierra. The tea, on Saturday, May 9, at the Tallman Pavilion on the Tri-County Fairgrounds will feature three courses and three different teas.


This year’s tea has a “Downton Abbey,” theme. Tables of eight are hosted and decorated by a “Mum”. The Mum sets her table with her best china and linens. Because of the theme, this year’s tea will also have footmen for servers.

Distinguished men of the area have been recruited and will be a treat for the guests. Guests are encouraged to dress up and wear a hat.

Hats from the collection of Ginny Rude will also be available to borrow.

Tickets are only $40, the profits from this event and other fundraisers allow Altrusa to give hundreds of books away every year to local children at Santa in the Park, the Jamboree at the spring Choo Choo Swap meet and to school libraries.

The club also funds Hug Me Bears and Bags Full of Fun at Northern Inyo Hospital.

Tickets are available on the Altrusa website, www.altrusaes.org or by calling, Gail Swain, 760.872.2428. Don’t hesitate, tickets are going fast. The tea is the day before Mother’s Day, what a great way to celebrate family.
