Fabric the focus of the annual Ladies Tea at Historic Mt. Gilead Church

KEARNEY, Missouri: Participants attending the Thirteenth Annual Ladies Spring Tea at historic Mt. Gilead Church are in for a treat this year. The annual event features two crafts. Guests, Barbara Tapp and Jeanne Wohlfarth, will be showing participants how to make a unique "rolled" fabric necklace. Participants will also create magnets using glass rocks and scrap art. Please join us for an afternoon of fun and tea and cookies. Participants are encouraged to dress in period style for this event. The tea is scheduled from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., Saturday, March 15.

"Our mission is to preserve local history. We try to offer programming focusing on that mission. Generally, the crafts relate to the historical nature of Clay County," said Elizabeth Gilliam Beckett, Historic Sites Supervisor. "Because we try to offer variety of period crafts and speakers, the event has become very popular. We have limited space for the spring tea so it is advisable for interested people to register early."

The cost for participants is $10 per person and includes supplies for the planned crafts. Historic Mt. Gilead Church is located two miles west of Kearney, north on Plattsburg Road. For more information or to register for this event, contact Clay County Historic Sites at 816.628.6065.

Trials, temptations, disappointments...

"Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fibre of a character, but strengthen it. Every conquered temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before."

*James Buckham
