Gals on the Go

Bev Rushing - email


Gals on the Go take an annual bus trip to San Francisco for the day.  You can shop, eat, sightsee or do whatever your heart fancies.  We have had women go to Teahouses, on SF Bay boat rides and even visit the de Young Fine Arts Museum.  The choice is yours and it is truly a fun day.  On the way home refreshments are served.
Time For Tea
Sharon Quintana - email

Time for Tea is a gathering of tea lovers.  We meet monthly, usually in a member’s home and enjoy a few hours of leisurely conversation with a cup, or two or three, of tea.  We occasionally go on field trips to a tea house for our gathering but enjoy each other’s homes more.  We share in bringing tea items and trying new recipes that we are collecting for a cookbook.  We have learned to set a proper tea table and a casual one.  We have had high tea complete with hats, iced tea in the summer heat, a progressive tea, and even danced the May pole dance.   Most of us look on our tea gatherings as an oasis in the midst of our very busy lives. 

“ When you sit down to a beautifully set table, sip a good brew from thin-lipped teacups, and enjoy delicious sandwiches and pastries, it is like taking a mini-vacation from ‘real life’.”   Susan Rios
