Ready for a spot of tea?
Magness Library and McMinnville Garden Club is hosting a Grandparents Tea on Sept. 24 at 11 a.m.
The event is for grandparents and their grandchildren and pre-registration is required. A signup sheet is in the children’s room located in the library.
Tea time will include a smidgen of education.
“We will go over basic etiquette at a tea, read the book, have tea (Earl Grey or Lipton sweet tea), bottled water, finger foods and small snacks,” said Magness Library assistant director Merissa Chapman.
“The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein will be read. The children’s picture book was published in 1964 and teaches a valuable lesson regarding selflessness – being more concerned with the needs and wishes of others than with one’s own.
Due to the pandemic, this is the first Grandparent’s Tea since 2019.
“The library is so excited to be partnering with the McMinnville Garden Club again, they always have amazing decorations for the tables and around the room,” said Chapman. “Earlier this year we bought a new set of six tea cups and saucers with a different design than the others. I’m personally excited to use them.”
The tea will be held in Magness Library’s auditorium. It is expected to last an hour to an hour and a half.
