Mother’s Day Tea & Dance

The library hosted the Meryton Assembly Dancers for English Country Dancing and tea.  Participants enjoyed tea served on real china and had scones, mini-muffins, brownies and cookies, too.  Special thanks to Kathy Roberts and Pam Dibble for supplying the delicious desserts! The Meryton Assembly Dancers whirled and twirled about to the delight of all in attendance.  Several accepted the invitation to join the dancers for the final three dances.  All in all, a good time was had by everyone in attendance!
