Mad HatterJoin us and don’t be late for a very important date…

The Shingletown Medical Center (SMC) will be hosting their 6th annual Spring Tea on Saturday, April 23rd from noon to 3:00 PM. The event will take place at the Black Butte Jr. High School, 7946 Ponderosa Way, five miles west of downtown Shingletown. The event will be decorated as the “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” and will be filled with laughter and fun surprises.

For the event this year the Stage 44 Players will be all dressed up in costume and will be putting on a few short skits and a sing-along with the audience. SMC has added balloon artist, Michael Barnes to make fun balloon animals for everyone.

There will also be a decorated photo booth in which professional photographer Lela Carrier will do individual or group photos. With the adult ticket purchase you receive a free 4 x 6 photo. Additional photos of various sizes will also be available for purchase and will be available prior to Mother’s Day.

Again this year, there will be the always interesting table decorating contest for “Prettiest Table Decoration” and for “Most Original Decoration.” To sponsor and/or decorate a table, please contact Jackie Ferguson at SMC for further information. There will be the “Hat Contest” so fancy, extravagant and flamboyant hats are encouraged. Prizes will be awarded for “Prettiest Hat” and the always-fun category “Wackiest Hat.” For this year we have added a costume contest, so put on your thinking caps for the “Prettiest Costume” and for “Most Original Costume.”

Shingletown Medical Center and their key sponsor; Shasta Regional Medical Center truly hope you can join them for an enjoyable afternoon with friends and family. Tickets are $15 for adults which includes the 4 x 6 photo, and $5 for children (under 14). Tickets are available at the Medical Center, Bella Salon, Higher Ground Coffee and Shingletown Thrift & Gift. The price includes a scrumptious lunch catered by Denise Murray and Cristina Hillman from Black Butte Elementary that will include tea sandwiches, quiches, assorted sweet treats and fun food for the children. This event has sold-out early for the past few years, so please get your tickets early.
