On Friday, April 28, at 1:30 P.M. until 2:30 P.M., the senior girls enjoyed a variety of tea, coffee, and small finger foods with the New Haven Town and Country Women’s Club at Central Hotel. They listened to a speaker, Casey (Moran) Tinker, who previously grew up in New Haven. Two of the four subjects addressed by the speaker were staying faithful to yourself and being a Shamrock. Afterward, all of the senior girls sat in the main entrance and talked to one another about their future plans.
When asking Brooke Reed what she thought about the event, she commented, “Senior tea was a very kind gesture that the Town and Country Women’s Club gave to us. Everything was very well put together and everyone treated us with their utmost respect. I felt honored to attend such a meeting.”
Furthermore, Taylor Oetterer followed up with, “Senior Tea was something that I have looked forward to for four years. I was so excited and happy when that day finally came. The women that hosted us were friendly and very helpful. I loved the different snack foods and drinks. Our speaker was great. I think my favorite part was speaking in front of everyone, telling them what our plans after high school was going to be.”
Anna Miller stated, “It was a wonderful way to spend time with my friends and end our last year together.”
