We've always supported the 4-H
It's an important part of our community.
We always sponsor a prize at the County Fair
in honor of our daughter.
So when friend Ann called and asked . . .
I said yes!
To giving a presentation on
to a group of 4Hers
The 4Hers listening to a presentation on etiquette before lunch.
And my presentation . . .
Set up after lunch
First a talk on kinds of tea,
three jars show white, green and black -- all brewed for the same 4 minutes
The plates show black tea, green tea, and teabag tea
Behind are the leaves after they're brewed
Then a talk on English afternoon tea
the accouterments of tea . . .
the toast fork, the mote spoon, the sugar spoon, the jam fork, the lemon fork . . .
and an American dessert fork and an English pastry fork
And a regular teaspoon and an English teaspoon
I can't do a program without a treat
And even though, the day started with cookies at life+style
And there was a large lunch including dessert,
And then the afternoon was going to be spent at Miss Jamie's and Commond Ground
I didn't want the 4Hers to feel "peckish" that afternoon
so I had a ginger tea biscuit for everyone!
And it was a mad crush as everyone came to get their "biscuit"!
And besides many of the children coming up
and saying thank you,
Ann gifted me with . . .
Purple pansies in a K-State mug
They do play this afternoon . . .
And we're rooting for them!
Oh, I would have loved to hear your presentation on tea! I think 4H is such a wonderful organization. Why don't you make a series of posts on what you presented to the students?
That surprises me that a 4H group would have a presentation on tea - but I love the idea Martha.
The horticultural societies across Ontario are trying to work along with our 4H groups too.
What a great idea!! I just know I would have loved to be there to hear your presentation!!!
I did one on table etiquette for our foundation scholars...it was a great group and amazingly, we ALL had fun!!
Blessings to you,
