St. Luke’s Christmas Tea
On Saturday, December 1st from 11am to 3pm
One of the most festive events in the pre-Christmas tradition in Chester is our Christmas Tea and Sale. Willard Hall will be filled with the sounds, smells and surprises of Christmas. Delicious light sandwiches and scrumptious sweets will cover the tea table where your choices of coffee, tea and hot spiced cider are poured by our hostesses. Visitors fill their plates ($8 for adults; $4 for youth 6-12 years; and children under 5 free) and join friends at inviting little tables festively decorated to eat and chat. Beforehand or after lunch, one could shop at Grandma’s Attic for little collectibles, choose handmade ornaments and Christmas decorations made throughout the year by the ladies crafting group, and take home some specially baked goodies from the Bake Table. There will be quilted pieces, painted items, candles and other crafts and art. As always the mood is relaxed and comfortable, and the event will set the stage for the other events of Chester’s Overture to Christmas.
