Syringa Club Tea Party Past & Picnic Fun This Week!

By Judy Prachyl  
There were three of us, Angel, Judy Prachyl, Ione Messick and Jayne Carlson, who had the privilege of being able to travel to the unique town of Sweet, nestled in the hills of Idaho just outside Horseshoe Bend.

The ride was fun and the rain actually held off until we were on our way back home. The Syringa Club ladies outdid themselves with the table set up, the decorations and food galore. All was absolutely delicious. Coffee, punch, and of course, Tea, were the beverages of choice.

When we signed in, we were separated and each of us placed at a different table so that we could meet new people and not huddle together in our own little circle,
as we are so inclined to do at functions where you do not know anyone else.

Judy and Margaret are now friends!

It worked out great because I for one have a tendency to shy away from talking to strangers and I met a lot of interesting and great

I was fortunate enough to be seated at a table with the current President, Margaret Berggren, Jr. Past President, May Hunter, and Secretary Judy McDonald.

Teapots fillled the walls.

"I resisted but Charlie persisted!

After stuffing ourselves with all the great food, Kenny Lyn Klingback read a story written by her husband’s great aunt, Mabel Klingbach. She described the trials, joys and hardships experienced in the late 1800s in the Emmett/Sweet/Ola area, where she and her husband, Charlie, homesteaded under Squaw Butte. Mabel described it as "a snug little house and an orchard planted." It left not a dry eye in the house.

After the drawing, and prizes were distributed, we said our thank-you and good-bye to our newly made friends and left with a feeling of happiness and good will.

Angel sat with Beverly and Nadene.

This was a wonderful experience
and memories that will be cherished
for a long time to come.

Thank you to the Sweet/Ola Syringa Club for inviting us and we will certainly look forward to seeing you again.
