Tea PartyWe’ll get all dressed up and have some tea! Oh, what fun this party will be!

The Shingletown Medical Center (SMC) will be hosting their 5th annual Pre-Mother’s Day Spring Tea and Fashion Show on Saturday, April 25th from noon to 2:30 PM. The event will take place at the Open Door Community Church on Hwy 44, just 7 miles east of downtown Shingletown.

For the event this year, SMC is looking for children (boys & girls) to model. “The Children’s Place” from the Redding Mall will be lending outfits for the models (under age 14) to display. If your child would like to “Walk the Red Carpet”, please contact Patti Allison at the Shingletown Medical Center by April 7th to confirm availability.

For a perfect Mother’s Day gift, professional portrait photos will be available for purchase this year from Boots N’ Bloomers Photography, Lisa Chadwick and Lorraine Paoli will take the photos and print on-site. Framed photos will be available to take home the day of the event.

Guests are encouraged to “Think Spring” and dress their Sunday best! A fun contest added for this year will be the “Mother & Child” Look-A-Like contest or basically the “Adult & Child” Look-A-Like contest for grandmothers, aunts or BFF’s. Anyone can join in on the fun!

Also 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 Patti Allison at SMC for further information. There will also be the modeling “Hat Contests” so fancy, extravagant and flamboyant hats are encouraged. Prizes will be awarded for “Prettiest Hat” and the always-fun category “Wackiest Hat.”

Shingletown Medical Center truly hopes you can join them for an enjoyable afternoon with friends and family. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children (under 14) and are available at the Medical Center, Bella Salon, Higher Ground Coffee, Majka Realty and Shingletown Thrift & Gift. Price includes scrumptious tea sandwiches, assorted sweet treats and fun food for the children. This event has sold-out early for the past few years, so please pre-purchase tickets by April 15th. Tickets will not be available at the door.
