The Catholic Women’s League (CWL) of St. John The Baptist Church raised money last weekend and did so with a nod to English society.

The CWL held its eighth annual Olde English High Tea Party last Saturday afternoon at the Columbus Community Hall with CWL president Anne Roy stating 120 tickets were sold. Hats and fascinators were the style of the day with sandwiches and treats served in addition to the tea, with live entertainment part of the afternoon as well.

“Come September, we’ll have our general meeting, and we’ll decide on which charities we give them to,” explained Roy.

Last year’s CWL Olde English High Tea Party generated enough money to make donations to six area charities, Roy pointed out.

“This is something a lot of organizations look forward to receiving donations from every year,” said Roy.

The Olde English High Tea Party is popular every year and always brings local women out to enjoy.

“A lot of people enjoy coming out each year,” she stated. “We have great entertainment. It’s a great social event.”

Plans start for the tea in January with a ten-person committee helping to put it together every year.

“Our committee is fantastic,” said Roy.

Roy added the organization is pleased with the level of support the Olde English High Tea Party receives annually. Businesses and individuals the CWL of St. John the Baptist Church were grateful to for their support of the tea include Larry Odette, Sandra Odette, Petras Family Dental, Country Bliss, Romano’s, River Bookshop, the Richmond Popcorn Co., Wolfhead Distillery, White Woods Home, Speck’s Restaurant, Luane Faucher, June and Gary McManemy, Joanne Higgins, Anne St. Louis, Lisa Mullins, Dianne Vigneux, Gabriella Marano, Owl’s Nest Emporium, The Panetteria and various CWL members.

“It’s a lot of fun,” she said. “It’s a wonderful afternoon.”
