Big Turnout for Q125 Tea Luncheon

They came with their hats on!
Approximately 100 women turned out Saturday afternoon for the Q125 Tea Luncheon held at the Elgin Community Center.
Margie Baum served as master of ceremonies for the event designed to raise funds for the Q125 celebration to be held in 2014. Mary Jane Boes said the prayer before the luncheon started. A hat style show then began with 20 ladies styling their hats and also a few old dresses. Millie Mundorf played some old time music during the style show.
Entertainment then followed with Deb Carden of Neligh doing her version of “Rendercilla” and Donna Mackel doing her Elgin “Bag Lady” skit, assisted by Marilyn Reestman. Rosie Schueths accompanied on the piano.
Food served were tea sandwiches, scones, cream puffs and carrot and chocolate cake. Also hot tea, coffee and cold tea.
Joy Ross and a number of eighth grade school girls were in charge of watching over the tables and the pouring of the coffee, tea and etc. All the food was prepared by Mackel and Doris Baum, chairpersons for the luncheon. There were 11 tables that were decorated and set for the event. Jessie Reestman of “Something Borrowed” did  most of the decorating. “It was fun putting this on and think the ladies really enjoyed it. It was the first one to ever be held in Elgin,” Mackel said.
All profits of the tea luncheon will be given to the Q125 Centennial Committee to be used in the year of the 2014 celebration.
