Dismas Charities Montgomery Holds Tea Party For Staff & Residents

Festooned with colorful hats and a warm, inviting atmosphere, Montgomery held its first Tea Party for female residents and staff. One part of the event was asking each attendee how they would like to be remembered. Resident Jennifer Blade stated “for being loving, caring and becoming the woman God called me to be.” Director Moszetta Nix and Word Processor Jeanette Mahan offered words of encouragement to the attendees. Nix encouraged them to remember their worth and to always carry themselves as ladies. A variety of teas and other refreshments were served. Social Services Coordinator Felecia Blair shared the history of the parties. It is said that the afternoon tea tradition was established by Anne, Duchess of Bedford (1710-1735) who requested that light sandwiches be brought to her in the late afternoon because she had a “sinking feeling” during that time because of the long gap between meals. She began to invite others to join her and thus became the tradition.
