As most of you know, the Concord Historical Society’s Spring/Mother’s Day Tea, which was held in the fully-restored historic Galindo Home May 9 – 11, was a sold out event. While you had to be there, you begin to understand why the five sittings were sold out through the accompanying photographs. The tables were lovely, the guests beautiful, the student and adult volunteers efficient and attentive, and the special scones, tea sandwiches and desserts were divine. For those lucky enough to attend on Mother’s Day, photographs of each table were turned into nice keepsakes of this special event.
At the request of CHS Director Emeritus Kay Massone, former board member Joan Reed lent her organizational skills, attention to detail and enthusiasm to orchestrate this marvelous event. Joan, together with co-chair Denise Brown, rallied the invaluable aid of CHS President Carol Longshore; Vivian Boyd, Linda Chambers, Joanne Fryer, Carole Kelsch, Gloria Lincoln and Barbara Strehlitz of the Society’s Events Committee; Evie Cunningham, Nancy Haramaki, Kathie Hieb, Jan Trolan and Dee Yount of the Galindo Home Committee; Barbara Hayworth; Galindo Home docents Isabel Hill and Eleanor Zuzan; and teachers and students of Mt. Diablo High School’s International Hospitality & Tourism Academy. Each deserves a big hug and sincere thanks! It was a success.
