OUR SPECIAL "POTLUCK" TEA TIME

Our Potluck Tea Social is a way we can raise extra funds
by having our friends provide our tea time. Money saved goes towards
much needed purchases for the group.
It has never failed to be filled with the most delicious foods
and delightful treats brought by our attendees.
Tea & scones are provided by the Victorian Tea & Dance Society.

WHAT TO BRING:
• a family-size dish (savory, sweet, veggie, etc.)
• a note listing any allergy alert ingredients
(such as dairy, nuts, gluten, soy, etc.)
• please bring already on a serving plate with serving utensil
(Ready to go, to be served "as is", will help us very much.)

Every year I am amazed & honored at the wonderful spread
that gets presented as our guests take the reins
at our Potluck Tea Lunch. Thank you all!

PLEASE NOTE: You are not required to bring a dish to attend
however it is much appreciated by all if you do!

*Come early to learn fun and lively Playford dances
at our workshop on August 2nd in preparation for
the Playford to the Present Ball!

PLEASE NOTE: For this month we are departing from
our customary couples dance class to bring you a workshop for
the upcoming ball. Be assured our couples dance class returns
in October when we next meet.
To attend our 12:30 workshops is an additional charge of $5.


LOOKING AHEAD...

In October we are honored to promote a "WEEKEND OF DANCE"
with back-to-back historical dance events!

On Saturday Oct. 3rd is the 15th Annual Playford to the Present Ball,
a lovely English Country Dance formal evening in our home hall,
the Scottish rite Cathedral (this one is not recommended for brand new dancers).

Then on Sunday Oct. 4th is our VTDS American Colonial Tea Dance Social
featuring one of our favorite callers, Judee Schumacher-Pronovost,
with a selection of Colonial-era dances and an Early American Tea Time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PLEASE R.S.V.P.!
Though walk-ins are welcome, it is important to plan properly to have abundance for all. When you reply YES we do purchase and prepare food for YOU. Kindly respond by Thursday afternoon prior to our Social of your R.S.V.P. if possible.

Though paper plates are available, we encourage guests to bring their own settings for tea time. It adds an elegant touch and helps reduce paper waste and clean-up time. (Quicker clean-up allows our Tea Hostesses time to dance after tea!)*
