Plans are well underway for the fourth annual Beebe Auxiliary Spring Tea to take place at 2 p.m., Sunday, May 18, at Lewes Presbyterian Church, 133 Kings Highway in Lewes. This popular annual social tea has its roots in one of the earliest auxiliary events and draws more than 100 auxiliary members and guests.
Seventy-eight years ago, the Beebe Auxiliary was founded to promote the welfare of the hospital, provide for student nurses, direct the baby guild and take care of necessary equipment needs. One of the new auxiliary's first functions was an event called Pour Tea.
Today, members and friends from throughout the community attend this afternoon gathering and enjoy a collection of sandwiches, scones, and delectable sweets, English breakfast tea and passion fruit (decaf) tea, talk to friends and listen to live entertainment.
The cost of the event is $18 a person, with reservations due by Saturday, May 10. Tables can be reserved and will seat seven individuals. Seating is limited, so make reservations soon by contacting Pat Sandy at 302-226-7732 or Muriel Pfeiffer at 302-947-2640.
