The Berthoud Historical Society 
hosts another successful Victorian Tea 
at the McCarty/Fickel house. 

The tables were set with love
and great care. 
Twenty nine wonderful guest 
graced us with their presence, 
as they shared a variety of 
delicious pastries, Black tea, 
scones with cream and lemon curd, 
mini-cupcakes, three types of 
sandwiches, and a fresh 
springtime fruit garnish. 
    Each place setting also included 
a little box of tea 
as a festive party favor. 

A teapot judging contest added 
to the fun and excitement. 
Thank you Shirley 
for judging the entrees.

Prizes were awarded 
to the top three winners. 
     Guests were served 
by our beautiful volunteers, 
dressed in fabulous period costumes. 

Virginia (our fearless leader), 
Gini, Janice, Sandy, and Meda.
Lew Ann, (not pictured) your being there 
added to the fun and your help 
was so appreciated.  
And it's always nice 
to have a man around the house. 

     John keeps the kitchen running smoothly, the tea flowing, and the dishes sparkling clean, as well as helping to set up, and making sure the house is warm and running smoothly, all in between coming to the rescue for any emergencies.  

    Our other male counterpoint, Dick, worked hard too. He logged many a mile between kitchen and table, setting up, and doing several other jobs saving the girls lots of time and effort. Much to my dismay, he managed to elude the photographer. Sorry, Dick. 

  My books were available for those yearning for a romantic read. My thanks to the Society for allowing me to tout my wares. 

I think it's safe to say, 
a good time was had by all,
 and we received many compliments. 

                       When it was over, 
                 we were a wee bit exhausted. 

                       But we can hardly wait
                              to do it again. 

Until next time, good bye 
from the McCarty/Fickel house.
