Members of Adult Bible Searchers Class enjoy Christmas tea Dec. 15

Members of the Adult Bible Searchers Class at First Baptist Church held a Christmas tea on Thursday afternoon, December 15. The tea was held at Haygralin, home of Louis and Carol Harris on South Alexander Avenue, with senior adult members of the church being the invited guests.

Members of the class prepared and brought the food earlier in the day and then left to pick up several of the guests for the event.

Gentlemen from the class were on hand to direct traffic, open car doors, and help with those who needed special assistance.

The dining room was decorated with garlands, wreaths, two small trees on side tables all arrayed with pine, holly with berries, apples, and antique reproduction ribbon. A matching centerpiece and silver candelabras along with a crystal punch bowl graced the table. Mrs. Harris made her Christmas punch which is featured in the new DAR cookbook, Cooking With The Daughters.

The table was set with silver and crystal serving dishes that had belonged to Mrs. Harris’s parents, Olin and Elizabeth Granade Lindsey.

Many guests toured the house and reminisced about their visits with the Lindseys there, as well as other special memories. With the food, which was lovingly prepared, Christmas music playing in the background, each room decorated, and laughter of friends, the afternoon was a day to remember.
